Religion is the impotence of the human mind to deal with occurrences it cannot understand
Religion as a science, as a study, is the greatest and healthiest exercise that the human mind can have.
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.
I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.
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.
Religion is the opium of the masses.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where these is hatred, let me sow love.
Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Though our feelings come and go, God's love for us does not.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
A faith is a necessity to a man. Woe to him who believes in nothing.
In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
Devotion is a social force.
God sleeps in the rock, dreams in the plant, stirs in the animal, and awakens in man.
Here is God's purpose - for God, to me, it seems, is a verb not a noun, proper or improper.
I, for one, thoroughly believe that no power in the universe can withhold from anyone anything they really deserve.
In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity. .
Devotion does not mean only chanting praise and singing glory of God, nor fasting and offerings made to God. Devotion is a specific attitude towards life and existence.
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
