Justify Beliefs quotes by Mark J. Solomon
#1. ...any object functioning within the physical laws of any particular universe does not have free will ... In terms of human beings, all behavior and cognition cannot appear out of thin air. Behavior and cognition must be the result of prior causes. This is because our brains obey the same laws of a cause and effect physical universe just like any other physical object. All events that occur in the universe are caused by antecedent events.

Quantum indeterminacy, which maintains that the state of a system does not determine a unique collection of values for all its measurable properties, is not a valid argument for free will and has been used incorrectly to justify beliefs of independent decision-making. Logically speaking, notions of randomness and indeterminism are actually additional arguments against free will. All events that occur at random in the universe are, by definition, not caused by antecedent events. Or to say it a different way, any random event cannot also be a willed event.

By the process of elimination, events that are "willed freely" are events that are neither determined nor random. In other words, in all likelihood events that are "willed freely" are events that simply do not exist. #Quote by Mark J. Solomon
Justify Beliefs quotes by Jay Woodman
#2. Look everywhere. There are miracles and curiosities to fascinate and intrigue for many lifetimes:
the intricacies of nature and everything in the world and universe around us from the miniscule to the infinite; physical, chemical and biological functionality; consciousness, intelligence and the ability to learn; evolution, and the imperative for life; beauty and other abstract interpretations; language and other forms of communication; how we make our way here and develop social patterns of culture and meaningfulness;
how we organise ourselves and others; moral imperatives; the practicalities of survival and all the embellishments we pile on top; thought, beliefs, logic, intuition, ideas; inventing, creating, information, knowledge; emotions, sensations, experience, behaviour.
We are each unique individuals arising from a combination of genetic, inherited, and learned information, all of which can be extremely fallible.
Things taught to us when we are young are quite deeply ingrained. Obviously some of it (like don't stick your finger in a wall socket) is very useful,
but some of it is only opinion – an amalgamation of views from people you just happen to have had contact with.
A bit later on we have access to lots of other information via books, media, internet etc, but it is important to remember that most of this is still just opinion, and often biased.
Even subjects such as history are presented according to the presenter's or author's v #Quote by Jay Woodman
Justify Beliefs quotes by Benjamin Netanyahu
#3. When I say that terrorism is war against civilization, I may be met by the objection that terrorists are often idealists pursuing worthy ultimate aims
national or regional independence, and so forth. I do not accept this argument. I cannot agree that a terrorist can ever be an idealist, or that the objects sought can ever justify terrorism. The impact of terrorism, not merely on individual nations, but on humanity as a whole, is intrinsically evil, necessarily evil and wholly evil. #Quote by Benjamin Netanyahu
Justify Beliefs quotes by David C. Pollock
#4. When we think of the word culture, obvious representations such as how to dress, eat, speak, and act like those around us come to mind. But learning culture is more than learning conformity to external patterns of behavior. Culture is also a system of shared concepts, beliefs, and values. It is the framework from which we interpret and make sense of life and the world around us. #Quote by David C. Pollock
Justify Beliefs quotes by Rebecca Timberlake
#5. I've always felt a person's worth is equal to how much of themselves they willingly invest into something they know no one else sees value in. #Quote by Rebecca Timberlake
Justify Beliefs quotes by Anthony De Mello
#6. You will seek for God in vain till you understand that God can't be seen as a "thing"; he needs a special way of looking similar to that of little children whose sight is undistorted by prefabricated doctrines and beliefs . #Quote by Anthony De Mello
Justify Beliefs quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#7. While facts do kill ignorance, ignoring facts does not kill them. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Justify Beliefs quotes by Dee L.R. Graham
#8. Associated with bonding to an abuser in humans, and possibly pro-
moting or strengthening the bond, are cognitive distortions embodied in beliefs that the abuser is not responsible for his or her abuse, abuse is a sign of the abuser's love, the abuser is also a victim, and if given enough love the abuser will stop abusing. It is not clear whether these cognitive distortions are responses to the victims' misattributions that love, not terror, is responsible for their high arousal and hypervigilance to the abuser, or if they are noncausally related to or cause the misattributions. #Quote by Dee L.R. Graham
Justify Beliefs quotes by Louise Hay
#9. Today we are mentally preparing for tomorrow. The thoughts we think, the words we speak, the beliefs we accept, shape our tomorrows. #Quote by Louise Hay
Justify Beliefs quotes by James Markert
#10. It's long past time now that we find a way to gather again. Our beliefs may be different. Some may not believe at all. But we have the same questions, the same needs, the same desire for good to prevail. And it's time to focus again on what brings us together instead of what could tear us apart. #Quote by James Markert
Justify Beliefs quotes by Jennifer Egan
#11. [I]t may be that a crowd at a particular moment of history creates the object to justify its gathering. #Quote by Jennifer Egan
Justify Beliefs quotes by Todd Phillips
#12. I think comedy directors tend to feel a need to justify the bad behavior, and I just never think that. I like bad behavior, I've always liked bad behavior, I'm a fan of bad behavior, and I don't think you have to justify bad behavior. #Quote by Todd Phillips
Justify Beliefs quotes by Lou Priolo
#13. An important part of leaving and cleaving has to do with abandoning parental beliefs, lifestyles, values, and traditions that are not clearly delineated in the Scriptures. Unless both husband and wife agree, such extra-Biblical standards should not be automatically carried over from one family to another. #Quote by Lou Priolo
Justify Beliefs quotes by Russell Anthony Gibbs
#14. If you feel insecure or unhappy, you will be drawn to or create someone who may treat you poorly. Your thoughts, beliefs and emotions are like orders at a restaurant and the Universe/God will serve up whatever you request through your state of mind. Pay attention to your thoughts, beliefs, emotions and words because you are placing orders that you may or may not actually want. #Quote by Russell Anthony Gibbs
Justify Beliefs quotes by Jacques Ellul
#15. Those who read the press of their group and listen to the radio of their group are constantly reinforced in their allegiance. They learn more and more that their group is right, that its actions are justified; thus their beliefs are strengthened. At the same time, such propaganda contains elements of criticism and refutation of other groups, which will never be read or heard by a member of another group...Thus we see before our eyes how a world of closed minds establishes itself, a world in which everybody talks to himself, everybody constantly views his own certainty about himself and the wrongs done him by the Others - a world in which nobody listens to anybody else. #Quote by Jacques Ellul
Justify Beliefs quotes by Darren Johnson
#16. Your behavior is based on your beliefs, and what you do and say, over and over again, helps develop your habits. #Quote by Darren Johnson
Justify Beliefs quotes by Bryan Magee
#17. Superstitions and belief in magic are perennial in just the same way as religion, and something near to being universal among mankind; and why this is so may be interesting, but in most cases the beliefs themselves are devoid of interesting content, at least to me. #Quote by Bryan Magee
Justify Beliefs quotes by Don Henley
#18. We satisfy our endless needs and justify our bloody deeds in the name of destiny and in the name of God. #Quote by Don Henley
Justify Beliefs quotes by Deborah King
#19. We have a lot of limiting beliefs that we're not even conscious of. Maybe your family taught you you weren't good enough or you weren't smart enough. Perhaps we're taught that this religion is good and all other religions are bad. It's endless. #Quote by Deborah King
Justify Beliefs quotes by Preeti Shenoy
#20. Since there are always two parties in a relationship, the need for space may vary, as each would come with their own set of beliefs about how to spend time together and how much togetherness is too much and how much exclusive time one can claim from their partner. The conflicts arise when one partner feels neglected or left out due to the other's need for space. If a partner expresses their need for space, it might feel like rejection or abandonment to the other. The clingy partner becomes clingier and the partner who is trying to get some space resents it, tries harder to break away, or if that isn't possible, lies about that late office meeting when they have actually been at the pub, having a drink with their friends. #Quote by Preeti Shenoy
Justify Beliefs quotes by Brian Herbert
#21. Poritrin nobles professed to follow gentle, bucolic Navachristianity, but their core beliefs did not extend to their daily lives. They had their festivals, and embraced religious trappings, but the Poritrin upper classes did little to demonstrate their true faith. #Quote by Brian Herbert
Justify Beliefs quotes by William Lane Craig
#22. Should a conflict arise between the witness of the Holy Spirit to the fundamental truth of the Christian faith and beliefs based on argument and evidence then it is the former which must take precedence over the latter. #Quote by William Lane Craig
Justify Beliefs quotes by Rajesh Goyal
#23. Let you recognize & appreciate all those who are carrying you on their back & those who love you without much expectations. Although it is not always easy to give thanks, acknowledge, admire & cherish but this is the only thing you must do in order to blossom further with gladness. Let you remind yourself that there is tremendous power in a thankful heart. Infact it is the only key that turns your situation around because it not only changes you, your outlook & your attitude but also bring God on your side with his untold blessings. Let you make sure that your thoughts, actions, reactions & beliefs always bring you peace & happiness instead of stress & frustration. Stay Grateful, Truthful, Humble & Prayerful! #Quote by Rajesh Goyal
Justify Beliefs quotes by William S. Burroughs
#24. Democracy is cancerous, and bureaus are its cancer. A bureau takes root anywhere in the state, turns malignant like the Narcotic Bureau, and grows and grows, always reproducing more of its own kind, until it chokes the host if not controlled or excised. Bureaus cannot live without a host, being true parasitic organisms. (A cooperative on the other hand can live without the state. That is the road to follow. The building up of independent units to meet needs of the people who participate in the functioning of the unit. A bureau operates on opposite principles of inventing needs to justify its existence.) Bureaucracy is wrong as a cancer, a turning away from the human evolutionary direction of infinite potentials and differentiation and independent spontaneous action to the complete parasitism of a virus. (It is thought that the virus is a degeneration from more complex life-form. It may at one time have been capable of independent life. Now has fallen to the borderline between living and dead matter. It can exhibit living qualities only in a host, by using the life of another - the renunciation of life itself, a falling towards inorganic, inflexible machine, towards dead matter.) Bureaus die when the structure of the state collapse. They are as helpless and unfit for independent existence as a displaced tapeworm, or a virus that has killed the host. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Justify Beliefs quotes by David Byrne
#25. I wanted to find a reason not to be cynical - to have some faith even when nothing around me seemed to justify it. #Quote by David Byrne
Justify Beliefs quotes by Adolf Hitler
#26. If the race is in danger of being oppressed or even exterminated the question of legality is only of secondary importance. The established power may in such a case employ only those means which are recognized as 'legal'. yet the instinct of self-preservation on the part of the oppressed will always justify, to the highest degree, the employment of all possible resources. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Justify Beliefs quotes by Paulo Coelho
#27. I see is that there are many people who destroy their marriages because of one-night stands with someone else. And as the French say, "C'est ne pas grave." It's not something easy to swallow, but at the same time, it does not justify you to end a long-lasting relationship because something happened. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Justify Beliefs quotes by Richard J. Foster
#28. In the chapter on study we considered the importance of observing ourselves to see how often our speech is a frantic attempt to explain and justify our actions. Having seen this in ourselves, let's experiment with doing deeds without any words of explanation whatever. We note our sense of fear that people will misunderstand why we have done what we have done. We seek to allow God to be our justifier. #Quote by Richard J. Foster
Justify Beliefs quotes by Kevin J. Vanhoozer
#29. What is the message? Can faith bereft of specific beliefs speak understanding? If so, understanding of what? My concern is that the only thing Cox has to say to young people seeking spirituality is "Do good."13 But why should we do good? And what is the good if it is not somehow rooted in the nature and work of God? Cox's Age of the Spirit needs a normative Word. For while belief without faith is empty, faith without belief is blind. #Quote by Kevin J. Vanhoozer
Justify Beliefs quotes by Sam Harris
#30. People lie so that others will form beliefs that are not true. The more consequential the beliefs - that is, the more a person's well-being demands a correct understanding of the world or of other people's opinions - the more consequential the lie. #Quote by Sam Harris
Justify Beliefs quotes by Antony Starr
#31. No one in 'Banshee' has small opinions. They have strong beliefs, and they will defend them ferociously. Having that element in the show just adds another level. It's another avenue for story, and it enriches the world. #Quote by Antony Starr
Justify Beliefs quotes by Claire North
#32. We are fighting for a better land, we are fighting for freedom. We wish only to have hope again in our lives, to have a safe place for our mothers, our children. We wish for justice. We wish for holidays. We wish to go walking in the sea and eat ice cream. We wish for antibiotics when our brothers are sick. We wish for a job that finishes at six o'clock in the afternoon. We wish to pay rent, to cook food with our own hands, good food, to taste cinnamon again. We wish to decorate our homes, and smell fresh paint, and be proud of the lives we have built. We wish to practise our beliefs, piously and in peace. We wish to know our neighbours, and play simple games, and read books, and watch TV. Is this so much? Is this more than any man desires? Do you understand?
Pg166 #Quote by Claire North
Justify Beliefs quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#33. They entrenched themselves in their preferences, their beliefs, their prejudices, and closed ranks against everything that was different #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Justify Beliefs quotes by Martin Luther
#34. Night and day I pondered until I saw the connection between the justice of God and the statement that 'the just shall live by his faith.' Then I grasped that the justice of God is that righteousness by which through grace and sheer mercy God justifies us through faith. Thereupon I felt myself to be reborn and to have gone through open doors into paradise. #Quote by Martin Luther
Justify Beliefs quotes by Dee Hock
#35. An illustration I use to get people to understand it is this: I'll ask major corporate audiences: Why don't you just take all your traditional beliefs about organizations, and apply them to the neurons in your brain? #Quote by Dee Hock
Justify Beliefs quotes by Timothy Keller
#36. Tolerance isn't about not having beliefs. It's about how your beliefs lead you to treat people who disagree with you. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Justify Beliefs quotes by Garrison Keillor
#37. You don't have to justify a beautiful stroke of good luck. Accept it. Smile and say thank you. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Justify Beliefs quotes by Shamcey Supsup
#38. If I have to change my religious beliefs, I would not marry the person that I love because the first person that I love is God, who created me. And I have my faith and my principles and this is what makes me who I am. And if that person loves me, he should love my God too. #Quote by Shamcey Supsup
Justify Beliefs quotes by Mark Twain
#39. I know your race. It is made up of sheep. It is governed by minorities, seldom or never by majorities. It suppresses its feelings and its beliefs and follows the handful that makes the most noise. Sometimes the noisy handful is right, sometimes wrong; but no matter, the crowd follows it. The vast majority of the race, whether savage or civilized, are secretly kind-hearted and shrink from inflicting pain, but in the presence of the aggressive and pitiless minority they don't dare to assert themselves. Think of it! One kind-hearted creature spies upon another, and sees to it that he loyally helps in iniquities which revolt both of them. Speaking as an expert, I know that ninety- nine out of a hundred of your race were strongly against the killing of witches when that foolishness was first agitated by a handful of pious lunatics in the long ago. And I know that even to-day, after ages of transmitted prejudice and silly teaching, only one person in twenty puts any real heart into the harrying of a witch. And yet apparently everybody hates witches and wants them killed. Some day a handful will rise up on the other side and make the most noise--perhaps even a single daring man with a big voice and a determined front will do it--and in a week all the sheep will wheel and follow him, and witch-hunting will come to a sudden end.

Monarchies, aristocracies, and religions are all based upon that large defect in your race--the individual's distrust of his neighbor, and his desi #Quote by Mark Twain
Justify Beliefs quotes by Anita Moorjani
#40. In truth, I'm not my body, my race, religion, or other beliefs, and neither is anyone else. The real self is infinite and much more powerful-a complete and whole entity that isn't broken or damaged in any way. The infinite me already contains all the resources I need to navigate through life, because I'm One with Universal energy. In fact, I am Universal energy. #Quote by Anita Moorjani
Justify Beliefs quotes by Kathleen Norris
#41. To church congregations and denominations that are weary of strife, of continually arguing things out in a tense, judgmental atmosphere, it may come as welcome news to learn that they, too, are allowed to say 'I know not' with regard to the Bible, free to not use it to justify taking sides in every issue that comes along. #Quote by Kathleen Norris
Justify Beliefs quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#42. Every person is a creator. We create with our ideas and beliefs. Our daily labor creates a worldly cocoon that enfolds us. We mold out of a granite substance not yet hardened the tutelary angels whose ideological formation will guide our passageway through the jungle of life. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Justify Beliefs quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#43. The beliefs of your country mostly become your own beliefs! Not the reason but the empty tales shape you! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Justify Beliefs quotes by Jim George
#44. Spiritual maturity keeps you from being easily swayed in your beliefs #Quote by Jim George
Justify Beliefs quotes by George Sarton
#45. Hellenic science is a victory of rationalism, which appears greater, not smaller, when one is made to realize that it had been won in spite of the irrational beliefs of the Greek people; all in all, it was a triumph of reason in the face of unreason. Some knowledge of Greek superstitions is needed not only for a proper appreciation of that triumph but also for the justification of occasional failures, such as the many Platonic aberrations. #Quote by George Sarton
Justify Beliefs quotes by Michael Faraday
#46. I hope that in due time the chemists will justify their proceedings by some large generalisations deduced from the infinity of results which they have collected. For me I am left hopelessly behind and I will acknowledge to you that through my bad memory organic chemistry is to me a sealed book. Some of those here, Hofmann for instance, consider all this however as scaffolding, which will disappear when the structure is built. I hope the structure will be worthy of the labour. I should expect a better and a quicker result from the study of the powers of matter, but then I have a predilection that way and am probably prejudiced in judgment. #Quote by Michael Faraday
Justify Beliefs quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#47. The ends justifies the means #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
