Religion is the recognition of all our duties as divine commands.
God is a concept by which we measure our pain.
If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my god.
In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity. .
We may be surprised at the people we find in heaven. God has a soft spot for sinners. His standards are quite low.
The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
You don't look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.
That man has reached immortality who is disturbed by nothing material.
I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.
God sleeps in the rock, dreams in the plant, stirs in the animal, and awakens in man.
The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.
I believe God is managing affairs and that He doesn't need any advice from me. With God in charge, I believe everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is there to worry about.
As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Yes, I am a Jew, and when the ancestors of the right honourable gentlemen were brutal savages in an unknown land, mine were priests in the Temple of Solomon.
I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.
God does not work for you, He works with you.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
I'm not into organized religion. I'm into believing in a higher source of creation, realizing we're all just part of nature.
Devotion is a social force.
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.
Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.
