Theology in general seems to me a substitution of human ingenuity for divine wisdom.
The most excellent and divine counsel the best and most profitable advertisement of all others but the least practiced is to study and learn how to know ourselves. This is the foundation of wisdom and the highway to whatever is good.
The Divine wisdom has given us prayer not as a means whereby to obtain the good things of earth but as a means whereby we learn to do without them not as a means whereby we escape evil but as a means whereby we become strong to meet it.
In war when a commander becomes so bereft of reason and perspective that he fails to understand the dependence of arms on Divine guidance he no longer deserves victory.
Scientific truth is marvelous but moral truth is divine and whoever breathes its air and walks by its light has found the lost paradise.
For truth is precious and divine too rich a pearl for carnal swine.
All the blessings we enjoy are Divine deposits committed to our trust on this condition that they should be dispensed for the benefit of our neighbors.
As you walk in God's divine wisdom you will surely begin to see a greater measure of victory and good success in your life.
Jesus wept Voltaire smiled. From that divine tear and from that human smile is derived the grace of present civilization.
The chief difficulty which prevents men of science from believing in divine as well as in nature Spirits is their materialism.
Every known fact in natural science was divined by the presentiment of somebody before it was actually verified.
We show deference to the civil authorities when they respect the divine origin of their power and when they serve the people with objective reference to the law of God.
Ardent love or desire introduced as passionately longing to please and glorify the Divine Being to be in every respect conformed to him and in that way to enjoy him.
To have dominion by religion is to have dominion over men's souls thus over their very spiritual life and to use the Divine things which are in their religion as the means.
Supreme serenity still remains the Ideal of great Art. The shapes and transitory forms of life are but stages toward this Ideal which Christ's religion illuminates with His divine light.
Religion promotes the divine discontent within oneself so that one tries to make oneself a better person and draw oneself closer to God.
The difference between religion and morality lies simply in the classical division of things into the divine and the human if one only interprets this correctly.
Religion must completely encircle the spirit of ethical man like his element and this luminous chaos of divine thoughts and feelings is called enthusiasm.
Even if it were proven that God didn't exist Religion would still be Saintly and Divine.
Religion is the recognition of all our duties as divine commands.
Human beings must be known to be loved but Divine beings must be loved to be known.
Most religions live from a narrative that shapes their relationship with the divine other God or the gods and with the human other the stranger.
I'm interested in spirituality and in religion and our relationship to the divine.
I think that to a very great extent we are partners with the divine in this enterprise called history. That is an ongoing relationship and there is absolutely no guarantee that things will automatically work out to our best advantage.
