Buddha

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.

Every natural fact is a symbol of some spiritual fact.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

My family, frankly, they weren’t folks who went to church every week.

Barack Obama

It’s a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.

A life is either all spiritual or not spiritual at all. No man can serve two masters. Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire.

Thomas Merton

I think art is the only thing that’s spiritual in the world. And I refuse to forced to believe in other people’s interpretations of God. I don’t think anybody should be. No one person can own the copyright to what God means.
