The social principles of Christianity preach cowardice, self-contempt, abasement, submission, humility, in a word all the qualities of the canaille
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 will not enter paradise until you have faith. And you will not complete your faith until you love one another.
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.
I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created parasitic wasps with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars.
Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.
Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that have received-only what you have given.
God has no religion.
There is only one Christ, Jesus, one faith. All else is a dispute over trifles.
Strong hope is a much greater stimulant of life than any single realized joy could be.
The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
God is not willing to do everything, and thus take away our free will and that share of glory which belongs to us
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.
He is not strong and powerful who throweth people down; but he is strong who witholdeth himself from anger
I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is.
I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.
Religion is the recognition of all our duties as divine commands.
I defy anyone to imagine an environment more exquisitely designed to provide us with opportunities for spiritual growth than this life of ours.
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.
Though our feelings come and go, God's love for us does not.
