Divine Quotes

The crude creations of mortal thought must finally give place to the glorious forms which we sometimes behold in the camera of divine Mind, where the mental picture is spiritual and eternal.

Robert Capa

Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart

Pablo Casals

I cannot say that Jesus was uniquely divine. He was as much God as Krishna, or Rama, or Mohammed, or Zoroaster.

Mahatma Gandhi

Disease is an experience of mortal mind. It is fear made manifest on the body. Divine Science takes away this physical sense of discord, just as it removes a sense of moral or mental in-harmony.

Mary Baker Eddy

"My thoughts are not your thoughts. For as high as the heavens are the above the earth, so are my thoughts above your thoughts, my ways above your ways." should be written over every pulpit. Because so often we think that God's ways are our ways. God's thoughts are our thoughts. And we created God in our own image and likeness saying, "God approves of this. God forbids that. God desires the other." This is where some of the worst atrocities of religion have come from. Because people have used [it] to give a sacred seal of a divine approval to some of their most worst hatreds, loathings, and fears. Whereas to the great theologians what I found when I was studying for A History Of God the great theologians in all three of the monotheistic religions, Jewish, Christian, Muslim all insisted that yes, God was personal. But God went beyond the personal. You shouldn't speak glibly about God in Judaism you may not speak God's name as a reminder that any human expression of the divine is likely to be so limited as to be blasphemous. But God should challenge your assumptions you shouldn't imagine you've got Him in your pocket.

Karen Armstrong

Never let your zeal outrun your charity. The former is but human, the latter is divine.

Hosea Ballou

I believe the divine is part of the world, not in a pantheistic way but by way of the movement of the Spirit.

Peter Garrett

This life in us; however low it flickers or fiercely burns, is still a divine flame which no man dare presume to put out, be his motives never so humane and enlightened; To suppose otherwise is to countenance a death-wish; Either life is always and in all circumstances sacred, or intrinsically of no account; it is inconceivable that it should be in some cases the one, and in some the other

Malcolm Muggeridge

Speech is human, silence is divine, yet also brutish and dead: therefore we must learn both arts.

Thomas Carlyle

When the divine decree descends, the human being is cornered.

Muhammad ibn Al_al Taqi

Suffering is part of the divine idea.

Henry Ward Beecher

The sons of Judah have to choose that God may again choose them. The divine principle of our race is action, choice, resolved memory.

George Eliot

Few men are so obstinate in their atheism, that a pressing danger will not compel them to acknowledgment of a divine power.....

Plato

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
