I'm a believer. I don't go to church. I don't belong to any particular religion, but I do believe in God. I couldn't write what I write about and be creative without a certain form of belief.
How can I believe in God when just last week I got my tongue caught in the roller of an electric typewriter?
Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
Rejoice and be glad for your reward is great in heaven.
That man has reached immortality who is disturbed by nothing material.
A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadow for those who don't.
If you're really spiritual, then you should be totally independent of the good and the bad opinions of the world... you should have faith in yourself.
Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.
The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude
I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
He who has no faith in others shall find no faith in them.
Man is to be found in reason, God in the passions.
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.
As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
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.
Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.
Once you have surrendered yourself, you make yourself receptive. In receiving from God, you are perfected and completed.
