Who trusted God was love indeed And love Creation's final law Though Nature, red in tooth and claw With ravine, shrieked against his creed.
Social life ismutual negotiation and society, social order, relies on this mutual negotiation between individuals; this represents both creed and particular reality in American society. In no other society is this creed and the corresponding reality as prominent as the United States.
Whenever a man talks loudly against religion,always suspect that it is not his reason, but his passions which have got the better of his creed.Laurence Sterne
Go put your creed into your deed,Nor speak with double tongue.ralph waldo emerson
I believe that it is of the utmost importance that we all should feel and inculcate among the people and circulate amongst them what I call a sense of compatriotism. We should all feel that we are all nationals of one country, whatever our race, colour, creed, or sect…a.d. patel
You took me weak and unprepared.I had not thought that you who sharedMy days, my nights, my heart, my life,Would slash me with a naked knifeAnd gently tell me not to bleedBut to accept your crazy creed.vita sackville-west
Truth has never been, can never be, contained in any one creed or system.mary augusta ward
Capitalism as a social order and as a creed is the expression of the belief in economic progress as leading toward the freedom and equality of the individual in a free and open society. Marxism expects this society to result from the abolition of private profit. Capitalism expects the free and equal society to result from the enthronement of private profit as supreme ruler of social behavior...Peter Drucker

Once, once for all, if you would save your heart from breaking, learn this lesson once for all you must cease, in this world, to believe in the eternity of any creed or form at all. Whatever grows in time is a child of time, and is born and lives, and dies at its appointed day like ourselves.james anthony froude

I'm not trying to sign people up to a creed, I'm much more interested in the people that disagree. These ideas are powerful but this isn't mysticism in the ordinary sense to be protected by mumblings about faith and all that. This is the real thing.terence mckenna

We have a Calvinistic creed, a Popish liturgy, and an Arminian clergy.
The cardinal doctrine of a fanatic's creed is that his enemies are the enemies of God .
Having a clear faith , based on the creed of the church is often labeled today as fundamentalism. Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and swept along by every wind of teaching, look like the only attitude acceptable to today's standards. We are moving toward a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as for certain and which has as its highest goal one's own ego and one's own desires.
in a society, in a culture, which all too often make relativism its creed - relativism has become a sort of dogma - in such a society the light of truth is missing; indeed, it is considered dangerous and "authoritarian" to speak of truth, and the end result is doubt about the goodness of life - is it good to be a person? is it good to be alive? - and in the validity of the relationships and commitments in which it consists.
If there is a sentence in the creed which we cannot say together, there is nothing in Christ which we would wish to be different; and heresies of the heart are quite as dangerous, and to me as estranging, as errors in the head.
We must recognize that it is a cardinal sin against democracy to support a man for public office because he belongs to a given creed or to oppose him because he belongs to a given creed. It is just as evil as to draw the line between class and class, between occupation and occupation in political life.
Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy.
Any church that imprisons a man because he has used an argument against its creed, will simply convince the world that it cannot answer the argument.
" As to Jains being Hindu dissenters, and, therefore governable by Hindu law, we are not told this date of secession [...] Jainism certainly has a longer history than is consistent with its being a creed of dissenters from Hinduism."
Their whole creed was anathema to Karl Marx. He had no sense of patriotism or love of country. He urged what he called “the proletariat ” in all countries to overthrow society by a violent revolution , to destroy the middle classes and all employers of labour , whom he denounced as ...
