„If you are not egotistical, you will welcome the opportunity to learn more.“

— John Marks Templeton
Context: I have no quarrel with what I learned in the Presbyterian church — I am still an enthusiastic Christian. But why shouldn't I try to learn more? Why shouldn't I go to Hindu services? Why shouldn't I go to Muslim services? If you are not egotistical, you will welcome the opportunity to learn more.

„Do you want to make your prayers more effective? Not that they are not effective, but do you want to help them become more effective?“

— John Marks Templeton
Context: We hope that there will be nothing that conflicts with anybody's religion or faith. We would never say a person's religion is not effective. We say, "Would you be interested in something more effective?" We always put things in an optimistic, progressive perspective. Do you want to make your prayers more effective? Not that they are not effective, but do you want to help them become more effective?

„The question is not is there a God, but is there anything else except God?“

— John Marks Templeton
Context: The question is not is there a God, but is there anything else except God? God is everyone and each of us is a little bit.

„It's self centered to think that human beings, as limited as we are, can describe divinity.“

— John Marks Templeton
Context: The correct description is that we try every day to become more humble when we talk about divinity, we try to realize how little we know and how open minded we should be. It's self centered to think that human beings, as limited as we are, can describe divinity.

„We may find the Divine to be 3,000 times what we think it is now.“

— John Marks Templeton
Context: We may find the Divine to be 3,000 times what we think it is now. It's like asking the tulip there to explain you. The tulip is a beautiful creation, with millions of atoms cooperating with each other to produce great beauty, but ask that tulip to talk about you, and it can't do it. It doesn't have those perceptive abilities. Wouldn't it be conceited to suggest that I had the abilities to describe the deity?

„We are trying to persuade people that no human has yet grasped 1% of what can be known about spiritual realities.“

— John Marks Templeton
Context: We are trying to persuade people that no human has yet grasped 1% of what can be known about spiritual realities. So we are encouraging people to start using the same methods of science that have been so productive in other areas, in order to discover spiritual realities. "The Devout Donor" by Jessi Hempel in Business Week (28 November 2005) http://www.templetonpress.org/sirjohn/articles_details.asp
