Spiritual progress is like a detoxification
Make sure you are doing what God wants you to do
- then do it with all your strength.
Religions are all alike- founded upon fables and mythologies.
You will not enter paradise until you have faith. And you will not complete your faith until you love one another.
Religion as a science, as a study, is the greatest and healthiest exercise that the human mind can have.
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.
Though wrong gratifies in the moment, good yields its gifts over a lifetime.
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.
Unless there is a Good Friday in your life, there can be no Easter Sunday.
We must lay before him what is in us, not what ought to be in us.
I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me Superman.
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 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.
We may be surprised at the people we find in heaven. God has a soft spot for sinners. His standards are quite low.
You can have religion with spirituality. You can also have religion without spirituality.
I had therefore to remove knowledge, in order to make room for belief.
Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. Love others as well as you love yourself.
A faith is a necessity to a man. Woe to him who believes in nothing.
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.
A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.
