How can I believe in God when just last week I got my tongue caught in the roller of an electric typewriter?
We may be surprised at the people we find in heaven. God has a soft spot for sinners. His standards are quite low.
You don't look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.
Though wrong gratifies in the moment, good yields its gifts over a lifetime.
God is cruel. Sometimes he makes you live.
An almost forgotten truth, even among some practising Christians, is that it's never the physical world, but only the spirit of the world that is evil. Therefore the soul must detach itself from the spirit of the world.
Faith, as well intentioned as it may be, must be built on facts, not fiction - faith in fiction is a damnable false hope.
You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.
Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. Love others as well as you love yourself.
The theological virtue of charity is the mysterious power, communicated by grace, to love as God loves.
He who knoweth his own self, knoweth God.
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.
I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.
Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted, in spite of your changing moods.
Doubt everything. Find your own light.
Hope is a good thing - maybe the best thing, and no good thing ever dies
Religion is the impotence of the human mind to deal with occurrences it cannot understand
There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, 'All right, then, have it your way.'
The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves.
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.
Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.
