Be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.Jesus saith unto him,Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.Bible (NewTestament): St John 20:27-9.
This well may be The Day of Judgment which the world awaits; But be it so or not, I only know my present duty, and my Lord’s command to occupy till He come. So at the post where He hath set me in His providence, I choose, for one, to meet Him face to face, no faithless servant frightened from my task, but ready when the Lord of the harvest calls; and therefore, with all reverence, I would say, let God do His work, we will see to ours. Bring in the candles.abraham davenport: As quoted by John Greenleaf Whittier in his poem "Abraham Davenport" first published in The Atlantic Monthly (May 1866); later published in The Tent on the Beach, and Other Poems (1867).
Years! Years, ye shall mix with me!Ye shall grow a partOf the laughing Sea;Of the moaning heartOf the glittered waveOf the sun-gleam's dartIn the ocean-grave.Fair, cold, and faithless wert thou, my own!For that I loveThy heart of stone!From the heights aboveTo the depths below,Where dread things move,There is naught can showA life so trustless! Proud be thy crown!Ruthless, like none, save the Sea, alone!voltairine de cleyre: "The Dirge of the Sea" (April 1891)
Let you sleeping head, my love, Human on my faithless arm; Time and fever burns away Individual beauty from Thoughtful children and the grave Proves the child ephemeral; But in my arms till break of day Let the living creature lie: Mortal , guilty , but to me The entirely beautiful .W. H. Auden, in A Book of Love Poetry, p.155
Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love; it is the faithless who know love's tragedies.Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray, ch. 1
"Having loved His own which were in the world, He loved them to the end." Often had they been faithless; and now, while addressing them, He knows that they will all in a few hours forsake Him. Yet He trusts them; He commits His cause to their keeping. And we must love as He loved.richard fuller: P. 71. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
Years! Years, ye shall mix with me! Ye shall grow a part Of the laughing Sea ; Of the moaning heart Of the glittered wave Of the sun-gleam's dart In the ocean-grave. Fair, cold, and faithless wert thou, my own! For that I love Thy heart of stone ! From the heights above To the depths below, Where dread things move, There is naught can show A life so trustless! Proud be thy crown! Ruthless, like none, save the Sea, alone!Voltairine de Cleyre, "The Dirge of the Sea" (April 1891)
Believe in Jesus Christ, our Savior and our Redeemer, the Son of God, who came to earth and walked the dusty roads of Palestine-the Son of God-to teach us the way of truth and light and salvation, and who, in one great and glorious act offered an atonement for each of us. He opened the way of salvation and exaltation for each of us, under which we may go forward in the Church and kingdom of God. Be not faithless, but believe in the great and wonderful and marvelous blessings of the Atonement.gordon b. hinckley: Selections from Addresses of President Gordon B. Hinckley, Ensign, Mar. 2001, 64.
There have been countless women in my life. They have participated in my triumphs and suffered with me in my moments of dissapointment. They have inspired me to attainment and they have balked me; they have caused me joy and they have heaped misery upon me; they have been faithful to the utmost and they have been faithless; they have praised and loved me and they have hated and denounced me. Always, a woman has swayed me — sometimes many have demanded my attention at the same moment.jack johnson: Jack Johnson on women 
If you only notice human proceedings, you may observe that all who attain great power and riches, make use of either force or fraud; and what they have acquired either by deceit or violence, in order to conceal the disgraceful methods of attainment, they endeavor to sanctify with the false title of honest gains. Those who either from imprudence or want of sagacity avoid doing so, are always overwhelmed with servitude and poverty; for faithful servants are always servants, and honest men are always poor; nor do any ever escape from servitude but the bold and faithless, or from poverty, but the rapacious and fraudulent. God and nature have thrown all human fortunes into the midst of mankind; and they are thus attainable rather by rapine than by industry, by wicked actions rather than by good. Hence it is that men feed upon each other, and those who cannot defend themselves must be worried.niccolò machiavelli: Book III, Chapter 13
But you are mobile as the veering air,And all your charms more changeful than the tide,Wherefore to be inconstant is no care:I have but to continue at your side.So wanton, light and false, my love, are you,I am most faithless when I most am true.edna st. vincent millay: From Sonnet III: "Oh, Think not I am faithful to a vow!", A Few Figs from Thistles (1922)
I think the question for him is, how is a faithless person to cope with life. This is where he believes he can find something upon which to establish a literary career. You know, don’t you, how often he talks of Yeats? This goes way back, to when he was very young.kenzaburō Ōe: p 52
The LORD said to me in the days of King Josiah: Have you seen what she did, that faithless one, Israel, how she went up on every high hill and under every green tree, and played the whore there? And I thought, “After she has done all this she will return to me”; but she did not return, and her false sister Judah saw it. She saw that for all the adulteries of that faithless one, Israel, I had sent her away with a decree of divorce; yet her false sister Judah did not fear, but she too went and played the whore. Because she took her whoredom so lightly, she polluted the land, committing adultery with stone and tree. Yet for all this her false sister Judah did not return to me with her whole heart, but only in pretense, says the LORD. (3:6-10)1 Corinthians Ch. 13 New American Standard Bible
He had come back a man, and faithless like a man. He knew that he had longed for her; that true friends share everything, except the past before they met. If only she would weep, even that, and let him comfort her; but she would not humble herself before a man. if only he would run to her side and cling to her; but his manhood was hard-won, no mortal should make him a child again.mary renault: p. 187 (Fire from Heaven (1969))
He made one of Antipater's recommendation a judge; and perceiving afterwards that his hair and beard were coloured, he removed him, saying, "I could not think one that was faithless in his hair could be trusty in his deeds."40 Philip. (Others)
Their feet through faithless leather met the dirt,And oftener chang'd their principles than shirt.Edward Young: To Mr. Pope, epistle I, l. 277.
Lest, once more wandering from that heaven, I fall on some base heart unblest, Faithless to thee, false, unforgiven, And lose my everlasting rest.wilmot, john, 2nd earl of rochester: Absent from thee, I languish still, ll. 13-16.
Their feet through faithless leather met the dirt, And oftener chang'd their principles than shirt.Edward Young, To Mr. Pope (1730), Epistle I, line 283.
Singing, "Here came a mortal, But faithless was she: And alone dwell for ever The kings of the sea."Matthew Arnold: St. 7 (The Forsaken Merman (1849))
Lay your sleeping head, my love Human on my faithless arm; Time and fevers burn away Individual beauty from Thoughtful children, and the grave Proves the child ephemeral; But in my arms till break of day Let the living creature lie: Mortal, guilty, but to me The entirely beautiful.wystan hugh auden: Lay your sleeping head, my love (1937) Lines 1-2, Written January 1937; also known as Lullaby.
I know that even in this faithless age there are many persons to whom the Bible is what it was to Calvin its smallest word as really the voice of God, its most trifling part as sacred; and to these persons I know I shall have given very great pain. They may not believe me when I say I am sorry for it; but if they will not, at least they will believe with me, that those who fight against God are most fighting against themselves; that He can and will protect His truth, and that every blow which is aimed against it will not injure truth, but will recoil on the striker's head. So far they will go with me. In the prayer that it may be so, may they and I unite.james anthony froude: Preface, Second edition (21 June 1849)
O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.jesus christ: 17:17 (KJV).
Many, and I think the determining, constitutive facts remain outside the reach of the operational concept. And by virtue of this limitation this methodological injunction against transitive concepts which might show the facts in their true light and call them by their true name the descriptive analysis of the facts blocks the apprehension of facts and becomes an element of the ideology that sustains the facts. Proclaiming the existing social reality as its own norm, this sociology fortifies in the individuals the “faithless faith” in the reality whose victims they are.herbert marcuse: p. 119 (One-Dimensional Man (1964))
The very thought of this Alaska garden is a joyful exhilaration. ... Out of all the cold darkness and glacial crushing and grinding comes this warm, abounding beauty and life to teach us that what we in our faithless ignorance and fear call destruction is creation finer and finer.john muir: Travels in Alaska (1915), chapter 16: Glacier Bay
The truly faithless one is the one who makes love to only a fraction of you. And denies the rest.anaïs nin: February, 1932
