Life without a friend is death without a witness.
If you don't change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever. Is that good news?
Adams, Douglas Noel
What you think means more than anything else in your life. More than what you earn, more than where you live, more than your social position, and more than what anyone else may think about you.

Faith has to do with things that are not seen, and hope with things that are not in hand.

Not only are you what you think you are, more so; what you think, you are.
D'Angelo, Anthony J

Passions elevate the soul to great things.
It's not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.

Reason is our soul's left hand, Faith her right.
It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgment.
Doyle, Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan
A narrow mind begets obstinacy, and we do not easily believe what we cannot see.
The essence of a man lies in what he thinks and how he thinks; not in what he does or suffers.
