Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
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.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
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.
What happens when people open their hearts?They get better.
It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
To withdraw is not to run away - and to stay is no wise action - when there's more reason to fear than to hope.
I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.
Moral indignation - jealousy with a halo.
Faith and Reason are like two wings of the human spirit by which is soars to the truth
The body of man is a limitation. Only the spirit opens onto the infinite.
Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
I don't know if God exists, but it would be better for His reputation if He didn't.
God does not work for you, He works with you.
Once you have surrendered yourself, you make yourself receptive. In receiving from God, you are perfected and completed.
Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that have received-only what you have given.
My soul is from elsewhere, Iím sure of that, and I intend to end up there.
Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. Love others as well as you love yourself.
Imagination is the true magic carpet.
I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.
