Split a piece of wood and I am there.
Religion is about turning untested belief into unshakable truth through the power of institutions and the passage of time.
A man's greatness is to be measured by his capacity for communion with others.
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.
Where there's hope, there's life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.
There is a polish for everything that takes away rust, and the polish for the heart is the remembrance of God.
What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul.
Faith without doubt is addiction
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one.

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.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
A faith is a necessity to a man. Woe to him who believes in nothing.
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.
Everyone who has ever built anywhere a 'new heaven' first found the power thereto in his own hell.
Faith, as well intentioned as it may be, must be built on facts, not fiction - faith in fiction is a damnable false hope.
It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven
Sometimes the only way the good Lord can get into some hearts is to break them.
