Christians have burned each other, quite persuaded That all the apostles would have done as they did.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
God has no religion.
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
I defy anyone to imagine an environment more exquisitely designed to provide us with opportunities for spiritual growth than this life of ours.
Where there's hope, there's life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.
The world is my country,all mankind are my brethren,and to do good is my religion.
Though our feelings come and go, God's love for us does not.
There is only one Christ, Jesus, one faith. All else is a dispute over trifles.
Once you have surrendered yourself, you make yourself receptive. In receiving from God, you are perfected and completed.
Everyone has the same God; only people differ.
As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Sometimes the only way the good Lord can get into some hearts is to break them.
Religion is about turning untested belief into unshakable truth through the power of institutions and the passage of time.
Faith in oneself is the best and safest course.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because I see everything by it.
God sleeps in the rock, dreams in the plant, stirs in the animal, and awakens in man.
God is a concept by which we measure our pain.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
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.
My idea of heaven is a place where the Tyne meets the Delta, where folk music meets the blues.
