Famous quotes containing the word beliefs:

    Children demand that their heroes should be fleckless, and easily believe them so: perhaps a first discovery to the contrary is less revolutionary shock to a passionate child than the threatened downfall of habitual beliefs which makes the world seem to totter for us in maturer life.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    If we cannot find a way to interpret the utterances and other behaviour of a creature as revealing a set of beliefs largely consistent and true by our own standards, we have no reason to count that creature as rational, as having beliefs, or as saying anything.
    Donald Davidson (b. 1917)

    We are born believing. A man bears beliefs as a tree bears apples.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
