On Life:

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.

One person who has mastered life is better than a thousand persons who have mastered only the contents of books, but no one can get anything out of life without God.

On God:

God is at home, it’s we who have gone out for a walk.

The eye with which I see God is the same eye with which God sees me.

You may call God love, you may call God goodness. But the best name for God is compassion.

The more God is in all things, the more He is outside them. The more He is within, the more without.

The seed of God is in us. Given an intelligent and hard-working farmer, it will thrive and grow up to God, whose seed it is and accordingly its fruits will be God-nature. Pear seeds grow into pear trees, nut seeds into nut trees, and God-seed into God.

God is at home it is we who have gone for a walk.
