Religion is the opium of the masses.
The glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness.
Religions are all alike- founded upon fables and mythologies.
Prayer is a turning to God.
I defy anyone to imagine an environment more exquisitely designed to provide us with opportunities for spiritual growth than this life of ours.
Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
God does not work for you, He works with you.
Faith, as well intentioned as it may be, must be built on facts, not fiction - faith in fiction is a damnable false hope.
I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.
As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.
Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear.
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.'
Everyone has the same God; only people differ.
Everyone who has ever built anywhere a 'new heaven' first found the power thereto in his own hell.
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.
It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
My idea of heaven is a place where the Tyne meets the Delta, where folk music meets the blues.
