A faith is a necessity to a man. Woe to him who believes in nothing.
Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world
Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained.
If God made anything better than women, I think he kept it for himself.
God is a comedian playing to an audience that is too afraid to laugh.
We can only know God well when we know our own sin. And those who have known God without knowing their wretchedness have not glorified Him but have glorified themselves.
Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.
God is not a diversion.
If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my god.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because I see everything by it.
Doubt everything. Find your own light.
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.
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.
Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.
As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.
Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.
Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
Four things support the world: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valour of the brave.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
