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.
From the beginning men used God to justify the unjustifiable.
I don't know if God exists, but it would be better for His reputation if He didn't.
Faith without doubt is addiction
You don't look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.

You can have religion with spirituality. You can also have religion without spirituality.
Faith is a commitment to belief contrary to evidence and reason.

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.

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.
Sometimes the only way the good Lord can get into some hearts is to break them.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you,
none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
Doubt everything. Find your own light.
It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
