There is only one Christ, Jesus, one faith. All else is a dispute over trifles.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
An almost forgotten truth, even among some practising Christians, is that it's never the physical world, but only the spirit of the world that is evil. Therefore the soul must detach itself from the spirit of the world.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you,

In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity. .
Faith in oneself is the best and safest course.
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.
The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
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.
It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
