«Life is something that no one can teach you,You have to learn it.»

Jerril Thomas Abraham


«True religion should be able to respond to the dark melodies, the faulty and hideous sounds that echo from the heart of men.»

Shūsaku Endō


«Even though people about us choose the path of hate and violence and warfare and greed and prejudice, we who are Christ's body must throw off these poisons and let love permeate and cleanse every tissue and cell. Nor are we to allow ourselves to become easily discouraged when love is not always obviously successful or pleasant. Love never quits, even when an enemy has hit you on the right cheek and you have turned the other, and he's also hit that.»

Clarence Jordan


«Separating one's “self” physically from the world (as an unseen entity) alienates the human being from the facts of a sensual world and its realities. In order to have a self, you must provide a story for that self. Whether it is the tale of past pain or future fears the etheric self requires a story because it is hitchhiking on the natural.»

Christopher Loren


«To connect is to dissolve the imaginary pyramids of artificial privilege.»

«Laws and principles are not for the times when there is no temptation: they are for such moments as this, when body and soul rise in mutiny against their rigour ... If at my convenience I might break them, what would be their worth?»

Charlotte Brontë


«You can never talk religion on network TV. It makes too many people angry. You can talk about sex.»

Craig Ferguson


«Like most people born into a religious tradition, my faith was as familiar to me as my skin, and just as disregardable.»

Reza Aslan


«Yet rather than calling the earliest religions, which embraced such an open acceptance of all human sexuality, 'fertility cults,' we might consider the religions of today as strange in that they seem to associate shame and even sin with the very process of conceiving new human life. Perhaps centuries from now scholars and historians will be classifying them as 'sterility cults.»

Merlin Stone


«I will tell you why we have these extraordinary minds and souls, Miss Whittaker," he continued, as though he had not heard her. "We have them because there is a supreme intelligence in the universe, which wishes for communion with us. This supreme intelligence longs to be known. It calls out to us. It draws us close to its mystery, and grants us these remarkable minds, in order that we try to reach for it. It wants us to find it. It wants union with us, more than anything.»

Elizabeth Gilbert


«Man created God in his image: intolerant, sexist, homophobic and violent.»

Marie de France


«When every hope is gone, 'when helpers fail and comforts flee,' I find that help arrives somehow, from I know not where. Supplication, worship, prayer are no superstition; they are acts more real than the acts of eating, drinking, sitting or walking. It is no exaggeration to say that they alone are real, all else is unreal.»

Mahatma Gandhi


«It’s all about “Priorities” There's No Such Thing as "Busy»

«One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.»

Mary Stevenson


«God's will has to be done, in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that.»

Sarah Palin


«...Bin Laden's quotes from the Quaran resonated in my brain: "When you meet the unbelievers, strike them in the neck." "If you do not go out and fight, God will punish you severely and put others in your place." "Wherever you find the polytheists, kill them, seize them, besiege them, ambush them." "You who believe, do not take the Jews and Christians as friends; they are allies only to each other. Anyone who takes them as an ally becomes one of them.»

Ayaan Hirsi Ali


«The merest accident of microgeography had meant that the first man to hear the voice of Om, and who gave Om his view of humans, was a shepherd and not a goatherd. They have quite different ways of looking at the world, and the whole of history might have been different. For sheep are stupid, and have to be driven. But goats are intelligent, and need to be led.»

Terry Pratchett

«Living a lie is painful, and doesn’t do anyone any good. I had to be true to myself, because, either way, God would know if I was lying.»

Isabel Quintero


«In our worldly perceptions of Jesus, we tend to embrace the kindness of his love ('be encouraged') but not the discipline of his love ('and sin no more'). But with the whole scope of his love, or maturity in Christ, we begin relying on him for guidance where we would prefer him to walk beside us rather than behind us.»
