We use the word 'LOVE' for camouflaging so many of our emotions. Why can't we use different words to convey different feelings? Why use a word when we don't sincerely mean it?
Bangambiki Habyarimana
God has not yet revealed himself to no one in no unclear terms. Religions are attempts to find him; on that level they are all equal
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Good gods are scarce because the majority of gods are created by evil men
Bangambiki Habyarimana
After losing faith, even an atheist feels a yawning void in his soul that needs filling; there is nothing imaginable that he can fill with it. It was all along meant to be filled with the sacred, with the unknown and unknowable power. That's the curse or blessing of humanity
Bangambiki Habyarimana
You can't have it both ways. Either you believe in my god or you go to hell
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Don't create unbelief or doubt in people's minds. When you do so you ruin their lives and you have nothing to give them in its place. It's ok if people delude themselves; those delusions keep their day running.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Science cannot disprove god. Science studies the things that are. The eternal question is who or what made them to be
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Atheists are the most honest of the human race. These people are unable to live a double life; they are unable to lie to themselves. Of course it's an evolutionary handicap, and if that handicap was widespread, our species would run the risk of extinction
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Don't curse the gods; you will feel shame when you have to call on them for help
Bangambiki Habyarimana
No one knows what god thinks of anything. He only knows and no one can claim to penetrate into his mysteries. Those who do that are liars and must be avoided at all costs
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Can anyone maintain power without lying? It looks to me like living without breathing. Morality apart, I think some evils are part and parcel of nature and we cannot do without them. Sometimes evil is even necessary to run this evil nature.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Why do religious believers hate unbelievers? The feel threatened by them, they feel besieged by them. Religions consider themselves as separate tribes in their own rights and feel like unbelievers will one day overrun their strongholds
Bangambiki Habyarimana
All religions are revealed and inspired. After all nothing happens without the will of god.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Can really anybody put his hand on his heart and profess to know beyond doubt what happens on the other side of this life?
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Once you believe that god is not a private property of anybody, you are on your way to becoming a new messiah. Maybe your own if not the world's
Bangambiki Habyarimana
An atheist is a disappointed true believer; he is an angry and hungry soul who has failed to find a real god to whom he can anchor his hope
Bangambiki Habyarimana
God is powerful. Even those who claim not to believe in him fear him. Though their mouths may confess to disbelieve in him, their hearts yearn for him.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
The eyes of god are upon you, I mean the eyes of society. We are prisoners of societies in which we live
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Every word that comes after And the Lord told me. . . is a pious lie
Bangambiki Habyarimana
It's utter arrogance to think that we can know what god ought to be or do. If we don't understand we must continue our search or recognize our ignorance
Bangambiki Habyarimana
When you have doubts about God, the right position to take is agnosticism, atheism is outright arrogance
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Why doesn't the pope convert to Calvinism? Why doesn't the Dalai Lama, convert to Christianity, why doesn't Billy Graham convert to Islam, Why doesn't the Ayatollahs convert to Buddhism, Why isn't Buddhism swept away? Religious leaders know that all religions are equal; they know that no one of them has the monopoly to the knowledge of God. They know that each religion is trying to find the hidden God and that no one religion can claim to have found him beyond doubt. That's why they remain where they are and respect each other.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
What is needed is not that a religion be true, meaning that what it claims exist beyond the ink it is written with in a holy book. That is hard to prove. What is important is that a religion be a good system to help us mere mortal deal with our short and troubled life in the universe. Whether what we hope for in the afterlife materializes or not is not important, what is important is that we believe it will materialize and that gives us hope.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
An atheist is someone who is disappointed in his search of god. He is a man who strongly needed god but couldn't find him. Atheism is a cry of despair
Bangambiki Habyarimana
All atheists will go to heaven. If god exists, not believing in him does not take him away and he cannot justly condemn those who seek him earnestly and cannot find him. He would even reward their earnest search for him.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
You take away my golden dreams and my visions of paradise, in its place you wake me up and hand me your reasons and facts and crude reality. You have ruined my life. If I commit murder or hang myself, let the god I used to pray to repay you in full.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Spiritual leaders, priests and prophets are lamps burning in the dark, seeking meaning for humanity.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Much terror in religion is not the will of god, it is created by power hungry clerics who thirst for absolute power and claim it for god. God does not seek power, he is already powerful.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
My gut instinct is that these heavens and hells exist nowhere else except in our hearts and minds
Bangambiki Habyarimana
If you believe that God is good and that He loves you without regard to whom you are or what you do, you will worship Him wholeheartedly. You will praise him with thanksgiving. If you believe He is angry against you, you will come to him with fear and trying to appease his anger. And you don't know when His anger will be over. Such a god keeps you in a perpetual psychological anguish. That is the typical kind of god we usually worship. That is the typical god approved by authority.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
I know what is going on in the heart of an atheist. Deep anguish that there is nothing beyond, nothing to live for, nothing to give him hope. I know because I endured the same predicament.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
He is an atheist anyone who does not believe in my god and the wrath of god is upon him; I am in my right to meet that wrath on him, thunders the fanatic
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Theology is like assuming that there is a black cat in a dark room where in fact there is no black cat, and endeavoring to study the cat's properties and how it may have evolved from its ancestors.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Give me something to worship; whatever. Cries the human soul
Bangambiki Habyarimana
Each mind conceives god in its own way. There may be as many variation of the god figure as there are people in the world
Bangambiki Habyarimana
All religions are guesswork
Billy Graham
‎Sincerity is the biggest part of selling anything -- including the Christian plan of salvation.
C. JoyBell C.
I am an extremely sincere individual. I am sincere, to a fault. One of the many things that I have come to realize, to learn, is that sincerity must be reserved and given only to those who deserve it. And one must save one's emotions, channeling them only to the people who are worthy of it. One must not throw one's pearls to the pigs.
Catherynne M. Valente
For there are two kinds of forgiveness in the world: the one you practice because everything really is all right, and what went before is mended. The other kind of forgiveness you practice because someone needs desperately to be forgiven, or because you need just as badly to forgive them, for a heart can grab hold of old wounds and go sour as milk over them.
Christian Dior
By being natural and sincere, one often can create revolutions without having sought them.
Criss Jami
You can't let the truth bring out the worst and let it get the best of you.
Criss Jami
The aim is to love God because the pure heart loves loving God and because the true mind knows He deserves it. Unlike the accusations and beliefs of the critics and skeptics, it is neither an obligation of duty; nor a fear of damnation; nor a wish for power; nor a desire to appear more righteous than others; nor because God needs it; but because through all love, truth, reason, faith, honesty, and joy in and beyond oneself and the universe, He is worthy.
Criss Jami
It's not the end if you're too shy to say 'I love you.' It's only the beginning; because you're first meant to show it anyway.
Criss Jami
I do not much trust the man who cares solely to inspire - he does not really inspire me - only the man who cares mostly to tell the truth, whatever that may do. For when the man who cares to tell the truth happens to inspire, I, in addition, find it easier to believe that he in fact does his homework on how and when one should truly inspire.
Criss Jami
Take lightly what you hear about individuals. We need not distort trust for our paltry little political agendas. We tend to trust soulless, carried information more than we trust soulful human beings; but really most people aren't so bad once you sit down and have an honest, one-on-one conversation with them, once, with an open heart, you listen to their explanations as to why they act the way they act, or say what they say, or do what they do.
Criss Jami
The motive behind criticism often determines its validity. Those who care criticize where necessary. Those who envy criticize the moment they think that they have found a weak spot.
Criss Jami
When it comes to world news, attitude is what marks the distinction between justice and vengeance. Justice is pure, but vengeance brings more ruin.
Criss Jami
Who you are in public is a test of your conviction; who you are in private, integrity.
Criss Jami
So, how close are love and genius, really? We know that they are both mentioned far more than lived.
Criss Jami
You ask me why I don't speakNot a word at willBut write so much worth well over a mill'Well I value words like I value kissesA sober one, a closer one penetrates the heartDarling it's how it mends it
Criss Jami
A sign of a lover of wisdom is his delight in not running his mouth about things he doesn't know.
Criss Jami
You have to lift a person up before you can really put them in their place.
Criss Jami
Friends ask you questions; enemies question you.
Dada Bhagwan
Spirituality [Nischay] means complete truth and worldly interactions means truth to a certain extent.
Dada Bhagwan
Sincerity' and 'morality' is the main road to go to God, the rest are the 'by-ways'.
Dada Bhagwan
Sincerity' and 'morality' is the basement of this world.
Diana Wynne Jones
Tell me of this Wizard Howl of yours. Sophie's teeth chattered but she said proudly, He's the best wizard in Ingary or anywhere else. If he'd only had time, he would have defeated that djinn. And he's sly and selfish and vain as a peacock and cowardly, and you can't pin him down to anything.
Erwin Schrödinger
The scientist only imposes two things, namely truth and sincerity, imposes them upon himself and upon other scientists.
G.K. Chesterton
An artist will betray himself by some sort of sincerity.
Glen Keane
Believe in your character. Animate (or write) with sincerity.

Haruki Murakami
People die all the time. Life is a lot more fragile than we think. So you should treat others in a way that leaves no regrets. Fairly, and if possible, sincerely. It's too easy not to make the effort, then weep and wring your hands after the person dies.
Haruki Murakami
Loving another person is a wonderful thing, and if that love is sincere, no one ends up tossed into a labyrinth. You have to have more faith in yourself.
Honoré de Balzac
However gross a man may be, the minute he expresses a strong and genuine affection, some inner secretion alters his features, animates his gestures, and colors his voice. The stupidest man will often, under the stress of passion, achieve heights of eloquence, in thought if not in language, and seem to move in some luminous sphere. Goriot's voice and gesture had at this moment the power of communication that characterizes the great actor. Are not our finer feelings the poems of the human will?
Honoré de Balzac
Women are always true, even in the midst of their greatest falsities, because they are always influenced by some natural feeling.
Israelmore Ayivor
You can be in your room and lead people. Just develop your potentials and publicize them and you will see people looking for your product. That is influence; self-made leaders do not look for followers. Followers look for them.
Israelmore Ayivor
Achievements take leaders' name everywhere. Character keeps those names wherever they reach. A leader with no trust soon fades no matter how far he goes.
Israelmore Ayivor
Self-leaders are still true leaders even if they have no known followers. True leaders inspire by the influence of their characters and general self-made brands. Leadership is defined by the virtues of one's behaviour.
Israelmore Ayivor
The concept of leadership is abused by people who think a person becomes a leader when he grows grey hair, put into a position and expected to function. Everyone has a leadership potential carried within in a specific area of his or purpose. Leadership is universal and built on trust.
Israelmore Ayivor
Self-leaders do not look for followers because they are busily pursuing their influencial dreams that followers will trace and ask for. Followers look for influence and that can be obtained from self-leaders.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders fight hard wars againstinjustice and unfairness. Theybelieve that the truth is a weapon;when triggered, the lie dies.
Israelmore Ayivor
A young child is a leader to an elderly person once his purpose has a faithful, sincere and trustworthy influence on people. Leadership is not restricted to position and age; it is self-made and influencial. Everyone has this self-leadership quality.
Israelmore Ayivor
Hiding the truth is as evil as feedingthe lie grow tough muscles.
Israelmore Ayivor
A true leader is still a leader even when he takes up servants' duty, provided he maintains a human face and added integrity to his self-retained qualities.
Israelmore Ayivor
Promised yourself never to keep quiet on the truth. Speak it out and let the lie die
Israelmore Ayivor
Contrary to popular opinion, leadership is not a reserved position for a particular group of people who were elected or appointed, ordained or enthroned. Leadership is self-made, self-retained, self-inculcated and then exposed through a faithful, sincere and examplary life.
Jane Austen
My Emma, does not every thing serve to prove more and more the beauty of truth and sincerity in all our dealings with each other?
Ljupka Cvetanova
Most people are willing to promise you a lot. A few are those who can promise you a little, just as much as they can.
Marty Rubin
Art should be pretentious. The place to be sincere is in one's relationships.
Maurice Maeterlinck
For it is our most secret desire that governs and dominates all. If your eyes look for nothing but evil, you will always see evil triumphant; but if you have learned to let your glance rest on sincerity, simpleness, truth, you will ever discover, deep down in all things, the silent overpowering victory of that which you love.
Mizan Chaudhury
Be jealous of fellow men, but of those men who are pious - your fellow men who are honest, sincere and loyal with their friends, family and teachings of their Creator. See everyone as equal and wish no harm on anyone - who are we to judge each other when we are being judged by our Creator.
Mizan Chaudhury
Choose a leader who will build bridges - not walls. A leader who will promote peace - not wars. A leader who believes in equality - not discrimination. A leader who is transparent - not secretive. A leader who will speak for all - not just animals.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Attending a funeral would leave the average person insane, if they truly believed that sooner or later they are also going to die.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
A truly compassionate man gives a poor woman a portion of his meal before he eats, not after he has eaten.

Rémy de Gourmont
It is not perhaps a question of truthfulness; it is rather a natural incapacity to think for herself, to take cognizance of herself in her own brain, and not in the eyes and in the lips of others; even when the ingenuously write into little secret diaries, women think of the unknown god reading--perhaps--over their shoulders. With a similar nature, a woman, to be placed in the first ranks of men, would require even higher genius than that of the highest man; that is why, if the conspicuous works of men themselves, the finest works of women are always inferior to the worth of the women who produced them.
René Daumal
A man who makes a plate or a shirt or a loaf of bread or anything our great great ancestors called a work of art, has no need to try to be sincere; all he can do is practice his craft to the best of his ability. But once he starts making useless things, how can he not be sincere?
Riaz Ahmed Gohar Shahi
Any person who, with all the sincerity of heart, is in search for God, on land or in the sea, is worthy of respect.
Richard Baxter
Seriousness is the very thing wherein consisteth our sincerity. If thou art not serious, thou art not a Christian (279).
Robert Vanleeuwen
Your heart is your life. What keeps you going and what gives you hope. So wherever it leads you, whatever or whoever it lives for. Keep the beat.
Robin Hobb
I once knew of a minstrel who bragged of having had a thousand women, one time each. He would never know what I knew, that to have one woman a thousand times, and each time find in her a different delight, is far better. I knew now what gleamed in the eyes of old couples when they stared at each other across a room...My familiarity with her was a more potent love elixir than any potion sold by a hedge-witch in the market.
Sam Owen
Being your authentic self reassures the people you meet.
Sue Fitzmaurice
What it means to be authentic:- to be more concerned with truth than opinions- to be sincere and not pretend- to be free from hypocrisy: walk your talk- to know who you are and to be that person- to not fear others seeing your vulnerabilities- being confident to walk away from situations where you can't be yourself- being awake to your own feelings- being free from others' opinions of you- accepting and loving yourself
Taylor Swift
I think for me, beauty is sincerity. I think that there are so many different ways that someone can be beautiful. You know, someone so funny that it makes them beautiful no matter how they look, because they're sincere in it. Or somebody who's really emotional, and moody and thoughtful and stoic, but that makes them beautiful because that's sincerely who they are
