Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.
An almost forgotten truth, even among some practising Christians, is that it's never the physical world, but only the spirit of the world that is evil. Therefore the soul must detach itself from the spirit of the world.
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.
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.
What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul.
In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity. .
Yes I am with you always, until the very end of time
If God did not intend for us to eat animals, then why did he make them out of meat?
You can have religion with spirituality. You can also have religion without spirituality.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where these is hatred, let me sow love.
Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.
How can I believe in God when just last week I got my tongue caught in the roller of an electric typewriter?
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.
Once you have surrendered yourself, you make yourself receptive. In receiving from God, you are perfected and completed.
There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.
Man will only become better when you make him see what he is like.
If you have a particular faith or religion, that is good. But you can survive without it.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because I see everything by it.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Hope is a good thing - maybe the best thing, and no good thing ever dies
It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.
