Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.
Religion is the recognition of all our duties as divine commands.
What happens when people open their hearts?They get better.
God is not a diversion.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
The great obstacle to the conversion of the modern world is the belief that religion has no intellectual significance; that it may be good for morals and satisfying to man's emotional needs, but that it corresponds to no objective reality.
The abdomen is the reason why man does not easily take himself for a god.
Devotion is a social force.
God has no religion.
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.
I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created parasitic wasps with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars.
The body of man is a limitation. Only the spirit opens onto the infinite.
I defy anyone to imagine an environment more exquisitely designed to provide us with opportunities for spiritual growth than this life of ours.
You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.
While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.
I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.
Sometimes the only way the good Lord can get into some hearts is to break them.
I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is.
All of us have a God in us, and that God is the spirit that unites all life, everything that is on this planet.
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 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.
