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.
Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.
Nature is my manifestation of God. I go to nature every day for inspiration in the day's work. I follow in building the principles which nature has used in its domain.
If you have a particular faith or religion, that is good. But you can survive without it.
Religion is the recognition of all our duties as divine commands.
There is a polish for everything that takes away rust, and the polish for the heart is the remembrance of God.
Those who earn an honest living are the beloved of God.
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.
Hope is such a beautiful word, but it often seems very fragile. Life is still being needlessly hurt and destroyed.
Strong hope is a much greater stimulant of life than any single realized joy could be.
On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
Faith and Reason are like two wings of the human spirit by which is soars to the truth

I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.
Spiritual progress is like a detoxification
God is not willing to do everything, and thus take away our free will and that share of glory which belongs to us
I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Prayer is a turning to God.
Once you have surrendered yourself, you make yourself receptive. In receiving from God, you are perfected and completed.
Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.
