Belief as I understand the term is a certain kind of State of body or mind or both. I would call it as a state of an organism and ignore the distinction of bodily and mental function. it is sldom determinewd by rational motives and the same is true of disbelief, though skeptics often overlook this fact. But courage is fighting is by no means the only form one perhaps even the most important. There is courage in facing poverty, derision, hostility of ones own herd. And above all courage to think calmly and rationally in the face of danger and to control the impulse of panic and fear. BERTRAND RUSSELL.
