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.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
Remind yourself that God is with you and nothing can defeat you. Believe that you now receive power from Him.
It is so hard to believe because it is so hard to obey.
We must lay before him what is in us, not what ought to be in us.
Religion is about turning untested belief into unshakable truth through the power of institutions and the passage of time.
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.
Faith in oneself is the best and safest course.
It doesn’t matter what you say you believe - it only matters what you do.
Though our feelings come and go, God's love for us does not.
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.
Doubt everything. Find your own light.
Man is to be found in reason, God in the passions.
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is the belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.
There is a polish for everything that takes away rust, and the polish for the heart is the remembrance of God.
Give us this day our daily faith, but deliver us, dear God, from belief.
On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
He who has no faith in others shall find no faith in them.
A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.
When you pray for anyone you tend to modify your personal attitude toward him.
