We may be surprised at the people we find in heaven. God has a soft spot for sinners. His standards are quite low.
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
Religion as a science, as a study, is the greatest and healthiest exercise that the human mind can have.
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.
There is a polish for everything that takes away rust, and the polish for the heart is the remembrance of God.
The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude

none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.
Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted, in spite of your changing moods.
Where there's hope, there's life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.
Yes I am with you always, until the very end of time
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where these is hatred, let me sow love.
I defy anyone to imagine an environment more exquisitely designed to provide us with opportunities for spiritual growth than this life of ours.
God's house must be clean, otherwise, God will just run away.
Devotion is a social force.
Everyone who has ever built anywhere a 'new heaven' first found the power thereto in his own hell.
On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
Once you have surrendered yourself, you make yourself receptive. In receiving from God, you are perfected and completed.
There is only one Christ, Jesus, one faith. All else is a dispute over trifles.
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.
