"I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love" is attributed to Henry Ward Beecher. St. Francis of Assisi is credited with the quote, "Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words."
Religious quotes give a person's ideas on a certain religion and what that religion means to them both on a personal level and how it could apply universally. Beecher and St. Francis shared their thoughts about God, faith and beliefs to inspire people to see things differently. Many similar quotes commonly come from authors, spiritual leaders, saints and clergy. For example, legendary spiritual leader Mahatma Gandhi said, ""Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening." While referring to no certain religion or denomination, Gandhi offered a bit of spiritual wisdom applicable to people of many different faiths.
