Man will only become better when you make him see what he is like.
You don't look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.
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.

A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.
How can I believe in God when just last week I got my tongue caught in the roller of an electric typewriter?
I'm a believer. I don't go to church. I don't belong to any particular religion, but I do believe in God. I couldn't write what I write about and be creative without a certain form of belief.

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.
Split a piece of wood and I am there.
Remind yourself that God is with you and nothing can defeat you. Believe that you now receive power from Him.
God does not work for you, He works with you.
Everyone has the same God; only people differ.
I'm not into organized religion. I'm into believing in a higher source of creation, realizing we're all just part of nature.
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.
There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.
Make sure you are doing what God wants you to do
- then do it with all your strength.
Devotion is a social force.
