A Quote by Leonard Jacobson on questions, answers, enlightenment, spirituality, seeking, and life

It is far wiser to ask for a question than an answer. When you think you have all the answers, it simply means you have run out of questions.

A Quote by St. John Chrysostom on god, christianity, healing, miracles, spirituality, love, freedom, hope, and truth

For if you change from inhumanity to alms giving, you have stretched fourth the hand that was withered.  If you withdraw from theaters and go to church, you have cured the lame foot.  If you draw back your eyes from a harlot ... you have opened them when they were blind ... These are the greatest miracles.

Saint John Chrysostom

A Quote by Elder Ephraim of Philotheou on god, christianity, courage, hope, mindfulness, spirituality, self control, truth, and love

"Be careful with your mouth, but primarily with your mind; do not let evil thoughts start talking to you.  Do not let your mouth say words that could perhaps wound your brother.  Let your mouth put forth words which are fragrant: words of consolation, courage and hope.  It is a person's mouth that reveals his interior, inner man."

"Don't worry too much about how spiritually poor you are_God sees that,but for you it is expected to trust in God and pray to Him as best you can,never to fall into despair and to struggle according to your strength.If you ever begin to think you are spiritually_"well off"_then you can know for sure that you aren't!True spiritual life,even on the most elementary level,is always accompanied by suffering and difficulties.Therefore you should rejoice in all your difficulties and sorrows."

A Quote by Milan Kundera on mysticism, mystic, delight, and spirituality

Mysticism and exaggeration go together. A mystic must not fear ridicule if he is to push all the way to the limits of humility or the limits of delight.

A Quote by Gerontissa Makrina on god, christianity, forgiveness, peace, love, spirituality, freedom, truth, joy, and enlightenment

If you are never angry, always forgiving instantly and constantly blaming yourself knowing you can never be right, you will have heaven on earth and in your heart.  And Christ will help you to do all these things.  You must be like Christ.  You must never love one sister more than another sister, love each sister equally.  If they hurt you or wrong you, love them even more."

Gerontissa Makrina (+1995)
