There is a polish for everything that takes away rust, and the polish for the heart is the remembrance of God.
Faith without doubt is addiction
Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. Love others as well as you love yourself.
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.
There is a justifiable reaction against a type of religion which imposed rigid restrictions on any kind of rational enjoyment, while it left men free to exploit one another and to make life hideous in the race for wealth.
I don't know if God exists, but it would be better for His reputation if He didn't.
Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.
I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.
Hope is such a beautiful word, but it often seems very fragile. Life is still being needlessly hurt and destroyed.
Give us this day our daily faith, but deliver us, dear God, from belief.
God sleeps in the rock, dreams in the plant, stirs in the animal, and awakens in man.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery and death ... I think. peace and tranquillity will return again.
Religion is the opium of the masses.
The body of man is a limitation. Only the spirit opens onto the infinite.
Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
Hope is a good thing - maybe the best thing, and no good thing ever dies
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.
Devotion is a social force.
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.
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
