   Does anybody know which are the thoughts of God, even if they are plants, mountains, sky, stars or whatever else?

A Quote by Saint Innocent Apostle to America on god, christianity, love, suffering, mercy, gratitude, virtue, sin, good, thanksgiving, and debt

For whom did Jesus suffer?  For all sinners, from Adam till the end of the world.  He suffered also for those very men who tortured Him, and for His enemies who had delivered Him to that torture, and for those who, having received from Him countless benefits, not only did not thank Him but even hated and persecuted Him.  He also suffered for all of us who offend Him daily by our untruths, wickedness, and terrible indifference to His suffering for us who by our ingratitude and abominable sins, as it were, crucify Him a second time.

A Quote by unknown on god, gifts, man, riches, patience, humility, authority, justice, virtues, and illness

Saint Peter Damaskin writes about the general and particular gifts of God and says: "The general gifts consist of four elements and all which result from them, as all the wonderful and awesome works of God outlined in Holy Scripture. The particular gifts are those gifts which God bestows upon every man individually whether it be riches for the sake of charity or poverty for the sake of patience with humility; whether it be authority for the sake of justice and the strengthening of virtues or subjugation and slavery for the sake of the expeditious salvation of the soul; be it health for the sake of helping the infirm or illness for the sake of the wreath of patience; be it understanding and skill in gain for the sake of virtue or weakness and lack of skill for the sake of submissive humility. All of this, even though it appears contrary to one another, nevertheless, it is by its purpose very good." In conclusion, St. Peter Damaskin says that we are obligated to give thanks to God for all gifts and with patience and hope to endure all tribulations and evil consequences. For all of that which God gives us or permits to befall us, benefits our salvation.

A Quote by Saint Dorotheos of Gaza on god, salvation, passions, habits, traps, suffering, evil, hell, delusion, and truth

Believe me, brethren, even if someone has just one passion as a habit, he will be subject to hell.  Even if we do ten good deeds and one bad one, the bad one outweighs the good.  It is like the eagle that is not captured by the snare, but only his claw is caught.  Because of this he is captured and loses all his strength.  Even if his whole body is outside the snare except just his claw can we say he has escaped?  Anytime he so desires, the person who has placed the trap can take him.  It is the same with the soul.  If it has one passion hardened into a habit, the enemy can cast it down anytime he wishes because he controls it through that passion.  It is for this reason that I will always tell you not to allow any passion to become a habit.

A Quote by Saint Isaac on god, christianity, silence, hearts, death, purity, cleansing, thoughts, virtues, and peace

Let us love silence till the world is made to die in our hearts.  Let us always remember death, and in this thought draw near to God in our heart - and the pleasures of this world will have our scorn.

A Quote by Saint Ignatios of Antioch on god, christanity, teaching, actions, living, virtues, goodness, spirituality, and knowledge

We recognize a tree by its fruit, and we ought to be able to recognize a Christian by his action.  The fruit of faith should be evident in our lives, for being a Christian is more than making sound professions of faith.  It should reveal itself in practical and visible ways.  Indeed it is better to keep quiet about our beliefs, and live them out, than to talk eloquently about what we believe, but fail to live by it.
