You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you,
none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
God's house must be clean, otherwise, God will just run away.
To withdraw is not to run away - and to stay is no wise action - when there's more reason to fear than to hope.
I believe in the fundamental truth of all great religions of the world.
God does not work for you, He works with you.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.
Strong hope is a much greater stimulant of life than any single realized joy could be.
There is a justifiable reaction against a type of religion which imposed rigid restrictions on any kind of rational enjoyment, while it left men free to exploit one another and to make life hideous in the race for wealth.
If you're really spiritual, then you should be totally independent of the good and the bad opinions of the world... you should have faith in yourself.
But for me the sweetest contact with God has no form. I close my eyes, look within, and enter a deep soft silence. The infinity of God's creation embraces me.
Fearlessness is a result of faith in oneself and faith in God.
God is not a diversion.
All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.
Faith without doubt is addiction
God is cruel. Sometimes he makes you live.
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.
Where there's hope, there's life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.
Everyone who has ever built anywhere a 'new heaven' first found the power thereto in his own hell.
Faith, as well intentioned as it may be, must be built on facts, not fiction - faith in fiction is a damnable false hope.
Four things support the world: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valour of the brave.
