Religions are all alike- founded upon fables and mythologies.
The theological virtue of charity is the mysterious power, communicated by grace, to love as God loves.
From the beginning men used God to justify the unjustifiable.
The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves.
It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
Split a piece of wood and I am there.
It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
We must lay before him what is in us, not what ought to be in us.
The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude
Man is to be found in reason, God in the passions.
How can I believe in God when just last week I got my tongue caught in the roller of an electric typewriter?
To you I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the Loyal Opposition.
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.
The body of man is a limitation. Only the spirit opens onto the infinite.
There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.
Everyone has the same God; only people differ.
