Prayer is a turning to God.
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.
I believe in the fundamental truth of all great religions of the world.
Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained.
Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world
The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
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.
Make sure you are doing what God wants you to do
- then do it with all your strength.
He who has no faith in others shall find no faith in them.
I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.
He who knoweth his own self, knoweth God.
Religion as a science, as a study, is the greatest and healthiest exercise that the human mind can have.
When you pray for anyone you tend to modify your personal attitude toward him.
Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.
In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
Faith in oneself is the best and safest course.
Sometimes the only way the good Lord can get into some hearts is to break them.
Strong hope is a much greater stimulant of life than any single realized joy could be.
You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
He is not strong and powerful who throweth people down; but he is strong who witholdeth himself from anger
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.
