Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.
There is only one Christ, Jesus, one faith. All else is a dispute over trifles.
I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.
I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.
An almost forgotten truth, even among some practising Christians, is that it's never the physical world, but only the spirit of the world that is evil. Therefore the soul must detach itself from the spirit of the world.
God's house must be clean, otherwise, God will just run away.
That man has reached immortality who is disturbed by nothing material.
Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.

Let one who has become wealthy reign, and let one who has power renounce
Devotion does not mean only chanting praise and singing glory of God, nor fasting and offerings made to God. Devotion is a specific attitude towards life and existence.
On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
Give us this day our daily faith, but deliver us, dear God, from belief.
You will not enter paradise until you have faith. And you will not complete your faith until you love one another.
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.
I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it.
Religion is the recognition of all our duties as divine commands.
Prayer is a turning to God.
It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
From the beginning men used God to justify the unjustifiable.
By God, when you see your beauty you will be the idol of yourself.
