My thinking is that belief/believing is a very missed used word.

(when it is evident that the minority is the stronger)
assume its opinion... while truth again reverts to a new minority.

- Thomas Jefferson

The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's throat,
for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as a liberator,
while the wolf denounces him for the same act

upon a definition of the word liberty;
and precisely the same difference
prevails today among us human creatures

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

- Abraham Lincoln

- Theodore Roosevelt

The freedom we are looking for
is the freedom to be ourselves,
