„Faith, faith, faith in ourselves, faith, faith in God, this is the secret of greatness.“

Call to the Nation
Contexto: Faith, faith, faith in ourselves, faith, faith in God, this is the secret of greatness. If you have faith in all the three hundred and thirty millions of your mythological Gods, and in all the Gods which foreigners have now and again introduced into your midst, and still have no faith in yourselves, there is no salvation for you.

„Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a great battle.“

—  Philo Roman philosopher -15 - 45 a.C.

Attributed to Philo in How Do We Know When It's God?: A Spiritual Memoir (1999) by Dan Wakefield. It has also been wrongly attributed to Plato and Ephrem the Syrian. It is a variant of the Christmas message "Be pitiful, for every man is fighting a hard battle," written by the Scottish preacher Ian Maclaren (also known as John Watson) in 1897.

The Better Part (1901)
Contexto: I believe that brutality tends to defeat itself. Prizefighters die young, gourmands get the gout, hate hurts worse the man who nurses it, and all selfishness robs the mind of its divine insight, and cheats the soul that would know. Mind alone is eternal. He, watching over Israel, slumbers not nor sleeps. My faith is great: out of the transient darkness of the present the shadows will flee away, and Day will yet dawn. I am an Anarchist.
