Make sure you are doing what God wants you to do
- then do it with all your strength.
God is a circle whose center is everywhere and circumference nowhere.
The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.
In Hinduism, conscience, reason and independent thinking have no scope for development.
Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.
He who knoweth his own self, knoweth God.
Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.
I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery and death ... I think. peace and tranquillity will return again.

Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
Everyone has the same God; only people differ.
If God did not intend for us to eat animals, then why did he make them out of meat?
If man attempts to suppress the animal side of his nature by a sheer effort of conscious will, nature finds a hundred unexpected and unpleasant ways to take its revenge.
Nature is my manifestation of God. I go to nature every day for inspiration in the day's work. I follow in building the principles which nature has used in its domain.
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.
What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul.
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
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.
