I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul.
From the beginning men used God to justify the unjustifiable.
Everyone who has ever built anywhere a 'new heaven' first found the power thereto in his own hell.
Give us this day our daily faith, but deliver us, dear God, from belief.
By God, when you see your beauty you will be the idol of yourself.
In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity. .
It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.
Though wrong gratifies in the moment, good yields its gifts over a lifetime.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.
Everyone has the same God; only people differ.
Where there's hope, there's life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.
God is cruel. Sometimes he makes you live.
Religion is the impotence of the human mind to deal with occurrences it cannot understand
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
A faith is a necessity to a man. Woe to him who believes in nothing.
All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness ... the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.
There is a polish for everything that takes away rust, and the polish for the heart is the remembrance of God.
Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.
Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.
