Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.
If only God would give me some clear sign! Like making a large deposit in my name in a Swiss bank.
Religion is the recognition of all our duties as divine commands.

Hope is such a beautiful word, but it often seems very fragile. Life is still being needlessly hurt and destroyed.
From the beginning men used God to justify the unjustifiable.
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.
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be the sons of God.
I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.
Devotion does not mean only chanting praise and singing glory of God, nor fasting and offerings made to God. Devotion is a specific attitude towards life and existence.
Where there's hope, there's life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.

It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
That man has reached immortality who is disturbed by nothing material.

When people cease to believe in God, they don't believe in nothing; they believe in anything.
He who has no faith in others shall find no faith in them.
