Mormonism is the pure doctrine of Jesus Christ; of which I myself am not ashamed.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
The president led us into the Iraq war on the basis of unproven assertions without evidence; he embraced a radical doctrine of pre-emptive war unprecedented in our history; and he failed to build a true international coalition.
Good masters teach good doctrine, but that taught by evil masters is wholly evil.
My doctrine is this, that if we see cruelty or wrong that we have the power to stop, and do nothing, we make ourselves sharers in the guilt.
Many a doctrine is like a window pane. We see truth through it but it divides us from truth.
I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life.
I always try to put a seed of hope into people's hearts. I'm not there to teach them doctrine necessarily, but to let them know that God is a good God, and has a plan for their lives. Hopefully, that will restore their faith, or draw them into faith.
The doctrine of the Kingdom of Heaven, which was the main teaching of Jesus, is certainly one of the most revolutionary doctrines that ever stirred and changed human thought.
H. G. Wells
A faith is something you die for, a doctrine is something you kill for. There is all the difference in the world.
Priests, ministers and rabbis are asking where the children are going. Slowly but surely, they're seeing that people are hungry for something beyond the doctrine. It isn't that they don't want religious truth. But they want the mystical core, the heart of the religious truth.
Example moves the world more than doctrine. The great exemplars are the poets of action, and it makes little difference whether they be forces for good or forces for evil.
The only question which any wise man can ask himself, and which any honest man will ask himself, is whether a doctrine is true or false.

Under the doctrine of separation of powers, the manner in which the president personally exercises his assigned executive powers is not subject to questioning by another branch of government.
Richard M. Nixon
A doctrine serves no purpose in itself, but it is indispensable to have one if only to avoid being deceived by false doctrines.

Michael J. Fox

For the poet the credo or doctrine is not the point of arrival but is, on the contrary, the point of departure for the metaphysical journey.
The great appeal of the doctrine that the mind is a blank slate is the simple mathematical fact that zero equals zero.
What President Bush did in his doctrine of preemptive strike and in his war in Afghanistan and in Iraq was to turn even his allies in Europe negatively toward America.
The usefulness of religion - the fact that it gives life meaning, that it makes people feel good - is not an argument for the truth of any religious doctrine. It's not an argument that it's reasonable to believe that Jesus really was born of a virgin or that the Bible is the perfect word of the creator of the universe.
I do care if religious doctrine becomes an excuse to exclude my fellow citizens from the rights and protections our country promises.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
