If God wishes to reveal the love that he harbors for the world, this love has to be something that the world can recognize, in spite of, or in fact in, its being wholly other.
Hans Urs von Balthasar

I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.
Old age may have its limitations and challenges, but in spite of them, our latter years can be some of the most rewarding and fulfilling of our lives.
A man does what he must - in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures - and that is the basis of all human morality.
John F. Kennedy
Courage is not the absence of despair; it is, rather, the capacity to move ahead in spite of despair.
The relationship between commitment and doubt is by no means an antagonistic one. Commitment is healthiest when it's not without doubt but in spite of doubt.
Our errors are surely not such awfully solemn things. In a world where we are so certain to incur them in spite of all our caution, a certain lightness of heart seems healthier than this excessive nervousness on their behalf.
You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.
Pearl S. Buck
Life becomes inspiring, not in spite of the problems and the hard hits, but because of them.
Joni Eareckson Tada
In spite of all the yearnings of men, no one can produce a single fact or reason to support the belief in God and in personal immortality.
Human nerves quickly get accustomed to the most unusual conditions and circumstances and I noticed that quite a number of men actually fell asleep from sheer exhaustion in the trenches, in spite of the roaring of the cannon about us and the whizzing of shrapnel over our heads.

Socialism violates at least three of the Ten Commandments: It turns government into God, it legalizes thievery and it elevates covetousness.

Many believe - and I believe - that I have been designated for this work by God. In spite of my old age, I do not want to give it up; I work out of love for God and I put all my hope in Him.
Even when we make mistakes, we hope others will love us in spite of our shortcomings - even if we don't deserve it.
Joseph B. Wirthlin

Love is a mess, at best, and I figure it can be very real in spite of all the things people try to attach to it.
It will stick with you and show up for better or worse in spite of all you or anyone else can do.
The thing I want to really say is that I still mess up. I still go out there and say things on TV that I know the Lord is like, 'Sherri what are you doing?' but I know I can go back and get on my knees and say, 'Lord forgive me.' I know he will never leave me nor forsake me. The wonderful thing is He answers my prayers in spite of me.
Things in our country run in spite of government, not by aid of it.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
