You don't look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.
Unless there is a Good Friday in your life, there can be no Easter Sunday.
I believe in the fundamental truth of all great religions of the world.
Here is God's purpose - for God, to me, it seems, is a verb not a noun, proper or improper.
He who knoweth his own self, knoweth God.
I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.
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.
A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.
Hope is such a beautiful word, but it often seems very fragile. Life is still being needlessly hurt and destroyed.
If you're really spiritual, then you should be totally independent of the good and the bad opinions of the world... you should have faith in yourself.
Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is the belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.
The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
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.
How can I believe in God when just last week I got my tongue caught in the roller of an electric typewriter?
Four things support the world: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valour of the brave.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
One of the things that is wrong with religion is that it teaches us to be satisfied with answers which are not really answers at all.
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one.
Faith in oneself is the best and safest course.
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
Hope is a good thing - maybe the best thing, and no good thing ever dies
