God judged it better to bring good out of evil than to suffer no evil to exist.
God does not give heed to the ambitiousness of our prayers, because he is always ready to give to us his light, not a visible light but an intellectual and spiritual one; but we are not always ready to receive it when we turn aside and down to other.
Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again.
For, were it not good that evil things should also exist, the omnipotent God would almost certainly not allow evil to be, since beyond doubt it is just as easy for Him not to allow what He does not will, as for Him to do what He will.
For what is faith unless it is to believe what you do not see?
Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.
Don't you believe that there is in man a deep [spirit] so profound as to be hidden even to him in whom it is?
If there is something more excellent than the truth, then that is God; if not, then truth itself is God.
Choose to love whomsoever thou wilt: all else will follow. Thou mayest say, "I love only God, God the Father." Wrong! If Thou lovest Him, thou dost not love Him alone; but if thou lovest the Father, thou lovest also the Son. Or thou mayest say, "I love the Father and I love the Son, but these alone; God the Father and God the Son, our Lord Jesus Christ who ascended into heaven and sitteth at the right hand of the Father, the Word by whom all things were made, the Word who was made flesh and dwelt amongst us; only these do I love." Wrong again! If thou lovest the Head, thou lovest also the members; if thou lovest not the members, neither dost thou love the Head.
