#1. Unlike the rationalism of the French Revolution, true liberalism has no quarrel with religion, and I can only deplore the militant and essentially illiberal antireligionism which animated so much of nineteenth-century Continental liberalism ... What distinguishes the liberal from the conservative here is that, however profound his own spiritual beliefs, he will never regard himself as entitled to impose them on others and that for him the spiritual and the temporal are different sphere which ought not to be confused. - Author: Friedrich August Von Hayek
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#2. Although it might seem paradoxical, growing up in a family of liberal-minded atheists, committed but never militant, tends to have devastating consequences. Being raised without a rigid backdrop of religious, political, or spiritual beliefs makes it hard to have a real crises later in life. There is no way forward if your point of departure is the comfortable passivity of someone who has been a self-professed agnostic since the age of twelve, without ever having considered those important - one might say grave - matters, such as God, death, love, failure, or fear. For a precocious agnostic, the virtues offered by skepticism become terrifying hands that strangle and suffocate the already rare capacity of an individual to question things. Conversely, intelligent people who grow up thinking one thing and, on reaching a certain age, realize that everything they believe is open to doubt - stark, brutal doubt - can truly enjoy a profound crises that, in the worst cases, leads them to know themselves a little better. - Author: Valeria Luiselli
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Valeria Luiselli
#3. If we no longer talk freely and openly about faith, we won't understand the language or the significance of faith, we'll misinterpret the religious words and deeds of others, and we'll underestimate the power faith can have in the lives of those deeply committed to their spiritual beliefs. This may present a serious risk to a generation whose most troubling conflicts promise to involve people who are primarily motivated by a very different faith. If we don't understand the faith roots of our American culture, how will we be able to defend it against theirs? - Author: Ben Carson
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Ben Carson
#4. No matter your spiritual beliefs, if you hold any, the answer is the same: sometimes, why is not knowable. If you open the refrigerator door and a tub of Kozy Shack tapioca pudding tumbles out and splats open onto the floor, you clean it. You don't stand there and question why it happened, how it was possible. Why doesn't matter now. - Author: Augusten Burroughs
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#5. I know that some of the spiritual beliefs that I have are that if I come from a place of love, and I try to get out of my ego and my desire to want more and be selfish in any shape or form, then whatever I'm doing is not good. - Author: Amber Valletta
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Amber Valletta
#6. My father's politics were old-fashioned in the sense that he used to say, all the time, "You've got to fight the system!" But my spiritual beliefs have led me to believe that the fight is the problem. - Author: Marianne Williamson
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Marianne Williamson
#7. I'm not ashamed of my spiritual beliefs, but I in no way incorporate them into this band. - Author: Amy Lee
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Amy Lee
#8. My religious point of view is something I can't talk about. It goes against my belief system to talk publicly about my own spiritual beliefs. - Author: John Frusciante
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by John Frusciante
#9. It is demonstrable and observable that our morals are based on our earliest spiritual beliefs. Matters of the Mind in no small measure have reflected matters of the Soul. - Author: Neale Donald Walsch
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#10. The more adept we become at cultivating an altruistic attitude, the happier we will feel and the more comfortable will be the atmosphere around us. But if our emotions fluctuate wildly and we easily give in to hatred and jealousy, even our friends will avoid us. So even for people with no spiritual beliefs, it is important to have a peaceful mind. - Author: Dalai Lama
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Dalai Lama
#11. The romantic view of the natural world as a blissful Eden is only held by people who have no actual experience of nature. People who live in nature are not romantic about it at all. They may hold spiritual beliefs about the world around them, they may have a sense of the unity of nature or the aliveness of all things, but they still kill the animals and uproot the plants in order to eat, to live. If they don't, they will die. - Author: Michael Crichton
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Michael Crichton
#12. As an actor it's your job to empathise with your character regardless of whether they have a different sexual orientation, spiritual beliefs, or anything. - Author: Darren Criss
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Darren Criss
#13. A lot of people have questioned how yoga and their own spiritual beliefs can come together. Yoga actually pre-dates religion. - Author: Christy Turlington
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Christy Turlington
#14. The nature of spiritual awakening is frequently misunderstood. The adoption of spiritual beliefs, seeing visions of God or celestial beings, the ability to channel, to heal, to foretell the future, or other paranormal powers - all such phenomena are of value and are not to be dismissed, but none of them is in itself indicative of spiritual awakening in a person who experiences them. - Author: Eckhart Tolle
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#15. Cruelty is cheap, easy, and chickenshit." That's also a touchstone of my spiritual beliefs. - Author: Brene Brown
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Brene Brown
#16. I have spiritual beliefs that I could literally go out and make an entire comedy routine about, and tour as some sort of spiritual guru, but it kind of goes against that [as] I actually believe the things, so I'm always kind of caught in the middle. - Author: Jim Carrey
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Jim Carrey
#17. Your blessings are immeasurable. . - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#18. Heaven does nothing: its non-doing is its serenity. Earth does nothing: its non-doing is its rest. From the union of these two non-doings All actions proceed. All things are made. How vast, how invisible This coming-to-be! All things come from nowhere! How vast, how invisible No way to explain it! All beings in their perfection Are born of non-doing. Hence it is said: Heaven and earth do nothing Yet there is nothing they do not do. Where is the man who can attain To this non-doing? - Author: Zhuangzi
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Zhuangzi
#19. Scientists have an expression for hypotheses that are utterly useless even for learning from mistakes. They refer to them as being "not even wrong." Most so-called spiritual discourse is of this type. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#20. Can you go a whole day with joy in your heart? Joy and vitality are an inseparable combination. Joy is not concerned with having fun; it is an inner spiritual quality that overcomes despair, pain and defeat. You cannot turn on joy like an electric light, but you can prepare yourself to receive it. - Author: Norman Vincent Peale
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#21. The beauty of theatre was that it was a moving, changing art form - only those who watch the same performance night in after night out see the real naturalistic drama at work - the small changes, adjustments, changes in articulation or intonation, the addition of a cough or hiccup, a longer pause rife with more (or less) meaning, the character's movement across the stage a step slower, a step closer to the audience, the change of a word here and there, an overall change in mood and tone, the actors becoming (or not) the characters more fully, blending in with them, losing themselves in the lines, in the characterizations, in a drama that is simultaneously unfolding and becoming more and more verisimilitudinous as time marches on. This is the real narrative - while the character changes on stage in an instant, the play changes slowly, unnoticeably (unnoticeable to those closest to it perhaps), like the face of a man in his thirties, like his beliefs about life, his motives, all slowly as if duplicating itself day by day, filling itself and becoming more and more itself, the rehearsal of Self, the dress rehearsal of Self, the performance of Self, the extended performance of Self, the encore… - it appears to be the same show, played over and over again with the same details to different crowds, and yet something happens. Something changes. It is not the same show. - Author: John M. Keller
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by John M. Keller
#22. That bar also delineated the realm of sweat and hourly wage, the working world that college was educating me to leave. Rewards in that realm were few. No one congratulated you for clocking out. Your salary was spare. The Legion served as recompense. So the physical comforts you bouth there - hot boudain sausage and cold beer - had value. You attended the place, by which I mean you not only went there but gave it attention your job didn't deserve. Pool got shot not as metaphor for some corporate battle, but as itself alone. And the spiritual comforts-friendship, for instance - couldn't be confused with payback for something you'd accomplished, for in the Legion everybody punched the same clock, drew the same wage, won the same prize. - Author: Mary Karr
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Mary Karr
#23. I would call myself more spiritual than religious. - Author: Chad Kroeger
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Chad Kroeger
#24. As I thought of these things, I drew aside the curtains and looked out into the darkness, and it seemed to my troubled fancy that all those little points of light filling the sky were the furnaces of innumerable divine alchemists, who labour continually, turning lead into gold, weariness into ecstasy, bodies into souls, the darkness into God; and at their perfect labour my mortality grew heavy, and I cried out, as so many dreamers and men of letters in our age have cried, for the birth of that elaborate spiritual beauty which could alone uplift souls weighted with so many dreams. - Author: W.B.Yeats
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by W.B.Yeats
#25. Dancing ignite a blissful body, soul and spirit. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#26. We ask for long life, but 'tis deep life, or noble moments that signify. Let the measure of time be spiritual, not mechanical. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#27. If the fate of the universe was decided in a single moment at the instant of the Big Bang , that was the most creative moment of all. - Author: Deepak Chopra
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Deepak Chopra
#28. Hope is not a prediction of the future, it's a declaration of what's possible. - Author: Yogi Bhajan
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Yogi Bhajan
#29. O that Christians would learn to live with one eye on Christ crucified and the other on his coming in glory! If everlasting joys were more in your thoughts, spiritual joys would abound more in your hearts. No wonder you are comfortless when heaven is forgotten. When Christians let fall their heavenly expectations but heighten their earthly desires, they are preparing themselves for fear and trouble. Who has met with a distressed, complaining soul where either a low expectation of heavenly blessings, or too high a hope for joy on earth is not present? What keeps us under trouble is either we do not expect what God has promised, or we expect what he did not promise. - Author: Richard Baxter
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Richard Baxter
#30. The trees reflected in the river - they are unconscious of a spiritual world so near to them. So are we. - Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#31. Great stories strengthen us to be great souls. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#32. What you do, what you own, what you plan, what you believe, what you think you are, what you want, and so much more are all the result of beliefs and values you've been trained to have, to be, and to want. Some of this is simply enculturation, but when it takes on the intent of deliberate manipulation, then enculturation per se is an inadequate term. - Author: Eldon Taylor
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Eldon Taylor
#33. Captain," said the squire, "the house is quite invisible from the ship. It must be the flag they are aiming at. Would it not be wiser to take it in?"
"Strike my colours!" cried the captain, "No sir, not I"... - Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#34. There are many theological trappings of monotheistic religions that insist that we will never completely experience or know God as the most high of existential truth which insists that the closest we can hope to comprehend of Him is only through an emphatic rapturous recognition that transcends the mere human mind. Yet, this concept of understanding is a chronic symptom of an internal, subjective limitation of consciousness concluded and shared by the forefathers of our faiths which have, unwittingly, prejudiced and influenced our churches, synagogues' and mosques and should be questioned vigorously less we continue down the path of ineffective tribalism and spiritual division. - Author: Jason Versey
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Jason Versey
#35. Simplifying our temporal environment leads to discovery in the spiritual environment. Finding Christ opens the world we yearn to enter but cannot fathom on our own. - Author: Camille Fronk Olson
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Camille Fronk Olson
#36. Love is the only flame that set the soul on fire. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#37. This is not the kind of country where you would feel comfortable if you were opposed to democracy, parliamentary law, independent courts and so I would say to people who don't feel comfortable with those values there might be other countries where they'd feel more comfortable with their own values or beliefs - Author: Peter Costello
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Peter Costello
#38. I was very spiritual as a kid. I think I felt and thought about things a lot more deeply than most of the other kids my age. I wanted to help people. - Author: Jake Epstein
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Jake Epstein
#39. No more fatal or deadly symptom can be seen in a church than this transference of its strength from spiritual to material forces, from the Holy Ghost to the world. The power of God in the Church is the measure of its strength and is the estimate which God puts on it, and not the estimate the world puts on it. - Author: E. M. Bounds
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by E. M. Bounds
#40. Religion (dharma) is decrease in kashay (anger, pride, deceit and greed) and increase of kashay is irreligion (adharma). When Kashay goes away (completely) is the religion of the Self (Soul). - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#41. I am not going to answer any questions as to my association, my philosophical or religious beliefs or my political beliefs, or how I voted in any election, or any of these private affairs. - Author: Pete Seeger
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Pete Seeger
#42. Being scared to fail inspires creativity; heartbreak inspires creativity; being hurt by others inspires creativity; being lost inspires creativity. Your masterpiece isn't something that you will have made in the colorful, it is understood in the darkness. Use the anxiety within and let it serve you. - Author: Forrest Curran
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Forrest Curran
#43. People wander about what you are pursuing. You have to explain about the thread. - Author: William Stafford
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by William Stafford
#44. To overcome something great you must first learn to overcome your own fears. - Author: Nikki Rowe
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Nikki Rowe
#45. Religions are metaphorical systems that give us bigger containers in which to hold our lives. A spiritual life allows us to move beyond the ego into something more universal. Religious experience carries us outside of clock time into eternal time. We open ourselves into something more complete and beautiful. This bigger vista is perhaps the most magnificent aspect of a religious experience.
There is a sense in which Karl Marx was correct when he said that religion is the opiate of the people. However, he was wrong to scoff at this. Religion can give us skills for climbing up on onto a ledge above our suffering and looking down at it with a kind and open mind. This helps us calm down and connect to all of the world's sufferers. Since the beginning of human time, we have yearned for peace in the face of death, loss, anger and fear. In fact, it is often trauma that turns us toward the sacred, and it is the sacred that saves us. - Author: Mary Pipher
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Mary Pipher
#46. "Spirituality comes from questioning everything but at the same time accepting everything. You can even be spiritual watching TV. When the ad comes on and says, "Don't hate me because I am beautiful," question that." - Author: K.d. Lang
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by K.d. Lang
#47. Marriage (in what is called the spiritual world) is impossible, because of the inequality between every subject and every object. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#48. My identity shifted when I got into # recovery . That's who I am now, and it actually gives me greater pleasure to have that identity than to be a musician or anything else, because it keeps me in a manageable size. When I'm down on the ground with my disease-which I'm happy to have-it gets me in tune. It gives me a spiritual anchor. Don't ask me to explain. - Author: Eric Clapton
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Eric Clapton
#49. I believe that most of us have false beliefs about our own nature, and our identity over time, and that, when we see the truth, we ought to change some of our beliefs about what we have reason to do. - Author: Derek Parfit
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Derek Parfit
#50. The question of the acceptance of theories should, I propose, be demoted to the status of a minor problem. For science may be regarded as a growing system of problems, rather than as a system of beliefs. And for a system of problems, the tentative acceptance of a theory or a conjecture means hardly more than that it is considered worthy of further criticism. - Author: Karl R. Popper
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Karl R. Popper
#51. Teach children tolerance. No one need surrender his or her own beliefs while extending tolerance to those with other beliefs. - Author: Gordon B. Hinckley
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#52. For our Christian groups and their leaders, it means that there is a simple, straightforward way in which congregations of Jesus' people can, without exception, fulfill his call to be an ecclesia, his "called out" ones: a touch point between heaven and earth, where the healing of the Cross and the Resurrection can save the lost and grow the saved into the fullness of human beings in Christ. No special facilities, programs, talents, or techniques are required. It doesn't even require a budget. Just faithfulness to the process of spiritual formation in Christlikeness exposed in the Scriptures and in the lives of his "peculiar people" through the ages (Titus 2:14, KJV). - Author: Dallas Willard
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Dallas Willard
#53. We can be confident that action which is in accord with a few basic beliefs cannot be wrong and can at least testify to the values we will need to cultivate. These are the beliefs that the human race is a family that has inherited a place on the earth in common, that its members have an obligation to work toward sharing it so that none is deprived of the elementary needs for life, and that all have a responsibility to leave it undegraded for those who follow. - Author: Gilbert F. White
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Gilbert F. White
#54. I am a Republican because of my military background, my pro-life beliefs, my support for the Second Amendment, and my belief that government should not grow excessively. - Author: John Shimkus
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by John Shimkus
#55. It's never too late to drop your beliefs and let your wounds heal. Instead of wounding others as well. - Author: Adam Scythe
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Adam Scythe
#56. It is easier to tame a thousand bulls than to tame yourself. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#57. It doesn't take a new heart to want the psychological relief of forgiveness, or the removal of God's wrath, or the inheritance of God's world. All these things are understandable without any spiritual change. You don't need to be born again to want these things. The devils want them. - Author: John Piper
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by John Piper
#58. You can map out a light plan or a life plan, but when the action starts, it may not go the way you planned, and you're down to the reflexes you developed in training. That's where roadwork shows - the training you did in the dark of the mornin' will show when you're under the bright lights. - Author: Joe Frazier
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Joe Frazier
#59. The joy of Being, which is the only true happiness, cannot come to you through any form, possession, achievement, person, or event - through anything that happens. That joy cannot come to you - ever. It emanates from the formless dimension within you, from consciousness itself and thus is one with who you are. - Author: Eckhart Tolle
Spiritual Beliefs quotes by Eckhart Tolle
