God is not a diversion.
It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.
In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity. .
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 modern dilemma is essentially a spiritual one, and every one of its main aspects, moral, political and scientific, brings us back to the need of a religious solution.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
The most superior amongst the colors in the universe is the colour of Devotion.
To you I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the Loyal Opposition.
We can only know God well when we know our own sin. And those who have known God without knowing their wretchedness have not glorified Him but have glorified themselves.
Religion is the impotence of the human mind to deal with occurrences it cannot understand
Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.
You may never have proof of your importance but you are more important than you think. There are always those who couldnít do without you. The rub is that you donít always know who.
God is a concept by which we measure our pain.
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.
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.
While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.
Devotion is a social force.
Not only does God play dice, but... he sometimes throws them where they cannot be seen.
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.
I defy anyone to imagine an environment more exquisitely designed to provide us with opportunities for spiritual growth than this life of ours.
Though wrong gratifies in the moment, good yields its gifts over a lifetime.
