Doubt everything. Find your own light.
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.
God is not a diversion.
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.
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.
Devotion does not mean only chanting praise and singing glory of God, nor fasting and offerings made to God. Devotion is a specific attitude towards life and existence.
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.
Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Devotion is a social force.
It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.
Everyone who has ever built anywhere a 'new heaven' first found the power thereto in his own hell.
In Hinduism, conscience, reason and independent thinking have no scope for development.
Everyone has the same God; only people differ.
By God, when you see your beauty you will be the idol of yourself.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
But for me the sweetest contact with God has no form. I close my eyes, look within, and enter a deep soft silence. The infinity of God's creation embraces me.
To withdraw is not to run away - and to stay is no wise action - when there's more reason to fear than to hope.
Those who earn an honest living are the beloved of God.
I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.
If only God would give me some clear sign! Like making a large deposit in my name in a Swiss bank.
