I am prepared to waive the privilege against self-incrimination and to tell you everything you wish to know about my views or actions if your committee will agree to refrain from asking me to name other people. If the committee is unwilling to give me this assurance, I will be forced to plead the privilege of the fifth amendment at the hearing.
I go the way that Providence dictates with the assurance of a sleepwalker.Adolf Hitler
The best assurance any one can have of his interest in God, is doubtless the conformity of his soul to Him. When our heart is once turned into a conformity with the mind of God. when we feel our will conformed to His will, we shall then presently perceive a spirit of adoption within ourselves, teaching us to say, "Abba, Father."ralph cudworth
But yet I'll make assurance double sure, And take a bond of fate: thou shalt not live.william shakespeare
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognizes that 'if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression', human rights should be protected by the rule of law. That just laws which uphold human rights are the necessary foundation of peace and security would be denied only by closed minds which interpret peace as the silence of all opposition and security as the assurance of their own power.
I Tiresias, old man with wrinkled dugs Perceived the scene, and foretold the rest I too awaited the expected guest. He, the young man carbuncular, arrives, A small house agent's clerk, with one bold stare, One of the low on whom assurance sits As a silk hat on a Bradford millionaire.
All men who live with any degree of serenity live by some assurance of grace.Reinhold Niebuhr
Perhaps the most sublime insights of the Jewish prophets and the Christian gospel is the knowledge that since perfection is love, the apprehension of perfection is at once the means of seeing one's imperfections and the consoling assurance of grace which makes this realization bearable. This ultimate paradox of high religion is not an invention of theologians or priests. It is constantly validated by the most searching experiences of life.Reinhold Niebuhr
Philosophy is to be studied, not for the sake of any definite answers to its questions, since no definite answerscan, asa rule, be knowntobetrue, but rather for the sake of the questions themselves; because these questions enlarge our conception of what is possible, enrich our intellectual imagination, and diminish the dogmatic assurance which closes the mind against speculation; but above all because, through the greatness of the universe which philosophy contemplates, the mind also is rendered great, and becomes capable of that union with the universe which constitutes its highest good.
Study the Bible topically. If you will study assurance for a week, you will soon find it is your privilege to know that you are a child of God.dwight l. moody

Valuation is vague and arbitrary, when there is no assurance that it will be generally acquiesced in by others.jean-baptiste say
Beneath the gentle modesty of his behavior lay the absolute assurance of a born artist.paul scofield
Commonplace people have an answer for everything and nothing ever surprises them. They try to look as though they knew what you were about to say better than you did yourself, and when it is their turn to speak, they repeat with great assurance something that they have heard other people say, as though it were their own invention.eugène delacroix
A court which yields to the popular will thereby licenses itself to practice despotism, for there can be no assurance that it will not on another occasion indulge its own will.felix frankfurter
In our reasonings concerning matter of fact, there are all imaginable degrees of assurance, from the highest certainty to the lowest species of moral evidence. A wise man, therefore, proportions his belief to the evidence. ... no testimony is sufficient to establish a miracle, unless the testimony be of such a kind, that its falsehood would be more miraculous, than the fact, which it endeavors to establish.David Hume
If pains be to be taken to give him a manly air and assurance betimes , it is chiefly as a fence to his virtue when he goes into the world under his own conduct.john locke
Serve God, and God will take care of you. Submit to His will, trust in His grace, and resign yourself into His hands with the assurance that the Lord is well pleased with those "that hope in His mercy."gardiner spring
I can by no means approve the scurrility and contempt with which the Romanists have often been treated. I dare not rail at, or despise, any man: much less those who profess to believe in the same Master. But I pity them much; having the same assurance, that Jesus is the Christ, and that no Romanist can expect to be saved, according to the terms of his covenant.john wesley
I stand by my kind; and I thank God for the temptations that have brought me into sympathy with them, as I do for the "love that urges me to efforts for their good. I hail the great brotherhood of trial and temptation in the name of humanity, and give them assurance that from the Divine Man, and some, at least, of His disciples, there goes out to them a flood of sympathy that would fain sweep them up to the firm footing of the rock of safety.

When we pray to God with entire assurance, it is Himself who has given us the spirit of prayer.
By liberty I mean the assurance that every man shall be protected in doing what he believes his duty against the influence of authority and majorities, custom and opinion. The State is competent to assign duties and draw the line between good and evil only in its immediate sphere. Beyond the limits of things necessary for its well-being, it can only give indirect help to fight the battle of life by promoting the influences which prevail against temptation, religion, education, and the distribution of wealth.Dalberg-Acton, John, 1st Baron Acton
There is no assurance of salvation in Islam . From the very beginning of Islam almost all Muslims have feared for their eternal destiny .
To many Muslims the lack of assurance of salvation is not considered a weakness but a reality that can motivate continued obedience. Great as it may be in the eyes of Islam for any person to make the decision to enter the faith , the entry constitutes no guarantee of personal justification in the eyes of God ...there is nothing the new initiate can do which assure him of salvation. “Islam” denies that a human can attain religious felicity on the basis of faith alone...
Nature, even when she is scant and thin outwardly, satisfies us still by the assurance of a certain generosity at the roots.
"It is a difficult problem," said Taraka. "I should give anything I have to be free but then, all that I have is power pure power, in essence uncommittable. A greater force might subdue it, but that is not the answer. I do not really know how to give you satisfactory assurance that my promise will be kept. If I were you, I certainly would not trust me."
