God is cruel. Sometimes he makes you live.
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.
Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted, in spite of your changing moods.
I defy anyone to imagine an environment more exquisitely designed to provide us with opportunities for spiritual growth than this life of ours.
Everyone has the same God; only people differ.
Scientist believe in things, not in persons
The modern dilemma is essentially a spiritual one, and every one of its main aspects, moral, political and scientific, brings us back to the need of a religious solution.
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
God is a comedian playing to an audience that is too afraid to laugh.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you,
none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
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.
Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.
I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created parasitic wasps with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars.
The most superior amongst the colors in the universe is the colour of Devotion.
Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who sets the planets in motion.
Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
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.
Hope is a good thing - maybe the best thing, and no good thing ever dies
I don't know if God exists, but it would be better for His reputation if He didn't.
