I think this a very sad sentiment. Faith answers nothing - why would it? Its just something you have accepted to be true without any good reason (by definition of faith). It is frankly very stupid to say that "what you feel in your heart" has some significance!! Why not just say "I don't know - no evidence has given me reason to move to any conclusion".
Your assumption that faith is contradictory to reason is false. What leads an individual to their particular faith beliefs is completely reasonable to them. Those that accept despite reason struggle to hold onto their faith.
