Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.
There is only one Christ, Jesus, one faith. All else is a dispute over trifles.
The higher animals are in a sense drawn into Man when he loves them and makes them (as he does) much more nearly human than they would otherwise be.
Split a piece of wood and I am there.
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.
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.
Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear.
It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.
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.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
The modern dilemma is essentially a spiritual one, and every one of its main aspects, moral, political and scientific, brings us back to the need of a religious solution.
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.
Let one who has become wealthy reign, and let one who has power renounce
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity. .
To you I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the Loyal Opposition.
God is not a diversion.
God sleeps in the rock, dreams in the plant, stirs in the animal, and awakens in man.
The theological virtue of charity is the mysterious power, communicated by grace, to love as God loves.
I, for one, thoroughly believe that no power in the universe can withhold from anyone anything they really deserve.
