Some quotes about miracles:

  • It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracles that the modern methods of instruction have not entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry.
    Albert Einstein.
  • Our mind creates categories – space and time, above and below, inside and outside, myself and others, cause and effect, birth and death, one and many – and puts all physical and psychological phenomena into categories like these before examining them and trying to find their true nature. It is like filling many different shapes and sizes of bottles with water in order to find out the shape and size of water.
    Thich Nhat Hanh
  • If you knew God as He ought to be known, you could walk on the seas, and the mountains would move at your call.
  • If you can’t walk on water
    You are no better than a straw.
    If you can’t fly in the air
    You are no better than a fly.
    Conquer your heart
    That you may become somebody.
  • One disciple said, “My master works great miracles. He can stand on one side of the river and move his hands and draw a picture on a piece of paper I hold on the other side of the river.”
    The second disciple replied, “That’s nothing, my master works much greater miracles than that:

    When he sleeps, he sleeps.
    When he eats, he eats.
    When he works, he works.
    When he meditates, he meditates”
