Let’s get started…



Hope sometimes gets a bad rap.

But that's the kind of hope that's just wishful thinking. Definitely not the kind of hope that creates a new life.

So you won't find quotes here about, "I'm not sure, but, hopefully, it'll work out..."

What you will find is quotes that show the power of a hopeful heart, a heart that believes in and sees a brighter future—even if it's not yet clearly in focus!

So click here for fabulous Quotes about HOPE like: "Hope is man's preparation for the unknown."


"Joy?" you say, "in the Spiritual Sayings section?"

Yes... Joy! Healthy spirituality stimulates this marvellous inner state.

Rebbe Nachman, a turn-of-the-18th-century Jewish religious philosopher, said, "Always remember, joy is not incidental to spiritual quest. It is vital."

I couldn't agree more! So click here for Quotes on Joy!

Mirror images

When we bow to the reflection we see in a mirror, the reflection bows back to us.

This is a metaphor for the powerful human attitude of respect. When we fundamentally respect other people—despite our differences—they too feel respect for us, and a bridge of understanding is born.

"Civilization is a method of living, an attitude of equal respect for all men."

Compassion is very different from pity. (Despite what my dictionary says!)

Pity denotes a higher/lower relationship, and feeling sorry for someone.

Compassion means caring about another's troubles so much that you're willing to help them help themselves. It's a real win/win.

That's why the Dalai Lama says, "Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive."

Here are more Quotes about Compassion.


Your spirituality—what you believe in—is the underlying factor of everything in your life...

As the French philosopher and Jesuit priest, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, put it: "We are spiritual beings having a human experience."

Thomas Merton (1915-1968) U.S. mystic Catholic monk

Known internationally for his religious depth and insight, Merton’s involvement in interfaith work and social activism caused some people to criticize him.

He wrote more than 70 books, and his courageous spirituality prompted him to open dialogue with prominent Asian spiritual figures, including the Dalai Lama.

“Your life is shaped by the ends you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire,” he said. Kindly click here for more great Thomas Merton quotes.
