A lie is a lie... unless your friends and family are in on it. Then it's a "commonly held belief."
CHRISTOPHER TITUS, Titus (2000)
I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should be malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can't generate. Life becomes stagnant.
RUFUS, Dogma (1999)
Spirituality is not religion. Religion divides people. Belief in something unites them.
RADY, Flight of the Phoenix (2004)
I'm proud to be an idealist because it shows that I believe in mankind. That may sound naive but every other belief will lead to destruction.
WALTER REDLICH, Nirgendwo in Afrika (2001)
You'd be surprised what you can make the general public believe.
AGENT PHILLIP BROYLES, Fringe, "Jacksonville" (2010)
Just because you can't prove something doesn't mean it isn't real.
HENRY GRIFFIN, Unnatural History, "Curse of the Rolling Stone" (2010)
We have nothing if not belief.
REEPICHEEP, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010)
People have to believe in something.
MAYOR, Rango (2011)
