Rejoice and be glad for your reward is great in heaven.
Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
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.
I believe God is managing affairs and that He doesn't need any advice from me. With God in charge, I believe everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is there to worry about.

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.
It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
The higher animals are in a sense drawn into Man when he loves them and makes them (as he does) much more nearly human than they would otherwise be.
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.
To you I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the Loyal Opposition.
Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.
I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it.

Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear.
Prayer is a turning to God.
All of us have a God in us, and that God is the spirit that unites all life, everything that is on this planet.
Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.
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.
