Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

The social principles of Christianity preach cowardice, self-contempt, abasement, submission, humility, in a word all the qualities of the canaille
Do not let Sunday be taken from you If your soul has no Sunday, it becomes an orphan.
I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.

I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul.
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.
In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadow for those who don't.
Religion is the recognition of all our duties as divine commands.
I, for one, thoroughly believe that no power in the universe can withhold from anyone anything they really deserve.
Though our feelings come and go, God's love for us does not.
