Divine Quotes

Cruelty has a human heart, And jealousy a human face Terror, the human form divine, And secrecy, the human dress

William Blake

Sculpture is more divine, and more like Nature, That fashions all her works in high relief, And that is Sculpture. This vast ball, the Earth, Was moulded out of clay, and baked in fire; Men, women, and all animals that breathe Are statues, and not paintings.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Moderation is the center wherein all philosophies, both human and divine, meet.

Benjamin Disraeli

Meditation is listening to the Divine within

Edgar Cayce

Don't give your mind permission to get disturbed. A disturbed mind is easily influenced. This will cost you your peace. Learn to maintain your peace by freeing yourself from attachments. Competing or comparing yourself with others will not allow you to focus inwards. An inner focus allows you to keep your eye on your higher self. Remember your original nature. It allows you to forge a link with the Divine. Then it becomes easy to recognise useless thoughts and replace them with a spiritual perspective. A calm mind is not just peaceful, it is focused, self-directing and Divine.

Unknown

To be discontented with the divine discontent, and to be ashamed with the noble shame, is the very germ and first upgrowth of all virtue.

Charles Kingsley

Mahatma Gandhi

If Christ is not divine, every impulse of the Christian world falls to a lower octave, and light and love and hope decline.

Henry Ward Beecher

Man's ultimate destiny is to become one with the Divine Power which governs and sustains the creation and its creatures.

Alfred A Montapert

The first step to improvement, whether mental, moral, or religious, is to know ourselves - our weakness,errors, deficiencies, and sins, that, by divine grace, we may overcome and turn from them all

Tryon Edwards

That which is part of our souls is eternal. . . Those lives are countless, but the soul or spirit that animates us throughout these myriads of existences is the same; and though "the book and volume" of the physical brain may forget events within the scope of one terrestrial life, the bulk of collective recollections can never desert the divine soul within us. Its whispers may be too soft, the sound of its words too far off the plane perceived by our physical senses; yet the shadow of events that were, just as much as the shadow of the events that are to come, is within its perceptive powers, and is ever present before its mind's eye.

Helena Blavatsky

The chief difficulty which prevents men of science from believing in divine as well as in nature Spirits is their materialism.

H. P. Blavatsky

Ah, wasteful woman, she who may On her sweet self set her own price, Knowing man cannot choose but pay, How has she cheapened paradise; How given for nought her priceless gift, How spoiled the bread and spilled the wine, Which, spent with due respective thrift, Had made brutes men and men divine.

Coventry Patmore

Study the past if you would divine the future

Confucius

We are the carriers of health and disease - either the divine health of courage and nobility or the demonic diseases of hate and anxiety

Jesus wept; Voltaire smiled. From that divine tear and from that human smile is derived the grace of present civilization.

Victor Hugo

Satire must not be a kind of superfluous ill will, but ill will from a higher point of view. Ridiculous man, divine God. Or else, hatred against the bogged-down vileness of average man as against the possible heights that humanity might attain.

Paul Klee

The most excellent and divine counsel, the best and most profitable advertisement of all others, but the least practised, is to study and learn how to know ourselves. This is the foundation of wisdom and the highway to whatever is good. . . . God, Nature, the wise, the world, preach man, exhort him both by word and deed to the study of himself.

Pierre Charron

The tendency to turn human judgments into divine commands makes religion one of the most dangerous forces in the world.

Georgia Harkness

In eternity there is indeed something true and sublime. But all these times and places and occasions are now and here. God himself culminates in the present moment and will never be more divine in the lapse of the ages. Time is but a stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it, but when I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away but eternity remains.

Henry David Thoreau

If God is indeed in the body—and consciousness and physiology are, from an evolutionary perspective, inextricably linked—we must acknowledge that divine consciousness is available in and through physicality.

Sol Luckman

The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton

The story of Easter is the story of God's wonderful window of divine surprise.
