God is not a diversion.
Four things support the world: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valour of the brave.
Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is the belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.
That man has reached immortality who is disturbed by nothing material.
I don't know if God exists, but it would be better for His reputation if He didn't.
The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn't the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.
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.
If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my god.

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.
As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
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.
Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted, in spite of your changing moods.
Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.
Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.
