The Catholic ideal is to order the whole of life towards unity, not by the denial and destruction of the natural human values, but by bringing them into living relation with spiritual truth and spiritual reality.
I'm a believer. I don't go to church. I don't belong to any particular religion, but I do believe in God. I couldn't write what I write about and be creative without a certain form of belief.
But for me the sweetest contact with God has no form. I close my eyes, look within, and enter a deep soft silence. The infinity of God's creation embraces me.
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.

In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadow for those who don't.
Religion is the opium of the masses.
Rejoice and be glad for your reward is great in heaven.
If only God would give me some clear sign! Like making a large deposit in my name in a Swiss bank.
Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that have received-only what you have given.
Those who earn an honest living are the beloved of God.
The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr.
The greatest quality of a man is to treat his enemies in a better way, for Allah himself showed kindness to his unbelievers.
