Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemyare deceitful.
Our eyes must be upon the Lord, not upon His people. His means – not ours, not theirs, but His means are large; and to a Faithful steward He will prove a Faithful master.james hudson taylor
A man who leaves memoirs, whether well or badly written, provided they be sincere, renders a service to future psychologists and writers, giving them not only a Faithful picture, but likewise human documents that may be relied upon.henryk sienkiewicz
[The Albanians] seem to be rather backward and primitive people... they can be as Faithful as a dog; that is one of the traits of the primitive. Our Chuvash were the same. The Russian tsars always used them for their bodyguards.joseph stalin

Our conversations turned frequently on the two cardinal points of poetry, the power of exciting the sympathy of the reader by a Faithful adherence to the truth of nature, and the power of giving the interest of novelty by the modifying colours of imagination.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Frost says in a piece of homely doggerel that he has hoped wisdom could be not only Attic but Laconic, Boeotian even “at least not systematic”; but how systematically Frostian the worst of his later poems are! His good poems are the best refutation of, the most damning comment on, his bad: his Complete Poems have the air of being able to educate any Faithful reader into tearing out a third of the pages, reading a third, and practically wearing out the rest.Randall Jarrell
I have never dreamt of contesting the Church her right to remain Faithful to herself, meaning to the commandments that come from Doctrine... but that she expects to impose these commandments upon me who do not have the good fortune of being a believer, trying to pour them into civil law in a way that they become obligatory even to us non-believers, is it right? To me it doesn't seem so.indro montanelli
He who is false to present duty breaks a thread in the loom, and will see the defect when the weavingof a life-time is unrolled. Neglect of one duty often renders us unfit for another. God "is a rewarder," and one great principle on which He dispenses His rewards is this through our faithfulness in one thing He bestows grace upon us to be Faithful in another.
Statesman, yet friend to truth; of soul sincere, In action Faithful, and in honour clear; Who broke no promise, serv'd no private end, Who gain'd no title, and who lost no friend; Ennobled by himself, by all approv'd, And prais'd, unenvy'd, by the Muse he lov'd.Alexander Pope
Be but Faithful, that is all; Go right on, and close behind thee There shall follow still and find thee Help, sure help.
If I can acquire money and also keep myself modest and Faithful and magnanimous, point out the way, and I will acquire it.
