What is faith and what is Cynicism?

Cynicism

A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin.

H. L. Mencken (1880 – 1956)

My pessimism extends to the point of even suspecting the sincerity of the pessimists.

Jean Rostand (1894 – 1977), Journal of a Character, 1931

No matter how cynical you get, it is impossible to keep up.

Lily Tomlin (1939 – )

What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900), Lady Windermere’s Fan, 1892, Act III

A cynic is not merely one who reads bitter lessons from the past, he is one who is prematurely disappointed in the future.

Sidney J. Harris

Faith

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

You can do very little with faith, but you can do nothing without it.

Samuel Butler

Romans 10:17 consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

The Bible
