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
I defy anyone to imagine an environment more exquisitely designed to provide us with opportunities for spiritual growth than this life of ours.
The abdomen is the reason why man does not easily take himself for a god.
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.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
Remind yourself that God is with you and nothing can defeat you. Believe that you now receive power from Him.
Here is God's purpose - for God, to me, it seems, is a verb not a noun, proper or improper.
You can have religion with spirituality. You can also have religion without spirituality.
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.
Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who sets the planets in motion.
Yes I am with you always, until the very end of time
Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear.
Faith is a state of openness or trust.
Man will only become better when you make him see what he is like.
The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr.
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.
Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
The body of man is a limitation. Only the spirit opens onto the infinite.
God is not a diversion.
My idea of heaven is a place where the Tyne meets the Delta, where folk music meets the blues.
Religion is the recognition of all our duties as divine commands.
