  • All that we call human history -- money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery --
    the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy. (C.S. Lewis)
  • 'All religions are true.' I just want to love God. (The Life of Pi)
  • We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love on another. (Jonathan Swift)
  • Believing in God is as much like falling in love as it is like making a decision. Love is both something that happens to you and you decide upon. (Donald Miller)
  • Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything. (Pedro Arrupe, SJ)
  • Man is born broken. He lives by mending. The grace of God is glue. (Eugene O'Neill)
  • Beliefs shift. People start believing in the god and end up believing in the structure. (Terry Pratchett)
  • I'm a big believer in tolerance. I think that religion at it's best comes with a big dose of doubt. I'm suspicious of too much certainty in the pursuit of understanding just because I think people are limited in their understanding. (Barack Obama)
  • I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell.I can't imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That's just not part of my religious makeup. (Barack Obama)
  • How God works is far too incomprehensible than what any bigot could grasp. (Kuya Jo)
  • To know love is to experience God. (Theo 131)
  • We all fall down because God stops us from getting too arrogant.
