We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.
Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
You will not enter paradise until you have faith. And you will not complete your faith until you love one another.
Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. Love others as well as you love yourself.
We tend to think of prayer, in spite of ourselves, in terms of profit and loss.
That man has reached immortality who is disturbed by nothing material.
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
If you're really spiritual, then you should be totally independent of the good and the bad opinions of the world... you should have faith in yourself.
There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, 'All right, then, have it your way.'
You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.
Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.
Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted, in spite of your changing moods.
The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves.
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.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Hope is such a beautiful word, but it often seems very fragile. Life is still being needlessly hurt and destroyed.
It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
God is a circle whose center is everywhere and circumference nowhere.
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.
Faith is a state of openness or trust.
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.
