The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr.
The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.
The world is my country,all mankind are my brethren,and to do good is my religion.
One of the things that is wrong with religion is that it teaches us to be satisfied with answers which are not really answers at all.
I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.
While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.
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.
Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. Love others as well as you love yourself.
You will not enter paradise until you have faith. And you will not complete your faith until you love one another.
In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity. .
There is only one Christ, Jesus, one faith. All else is a dispute over trifles.
It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.
If only God would give me some clear sign! Like making a large deposit in my name in a Swiss bank.
The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn't the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.
Spiritual progress is like a detoxification
Religion as a science, as a study, is the greatest and healthiest exercise that the human mind can have.
A faith is a necessity to a man. Woe to him who believes in nothing.
A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.
Sometimes the only way the good Lord can get into some hearts is to break them.
I don't know if God exists, but it would be better for His reputation if He didn't.
In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
