„Prayer opens the heart to God, and it is the means by which the soul, though empty, is filled by God.“

—  John Buchan British politician 1875 - 1940

This has similarly been attributed to Buchan, but is actually a misrendering of a sentence from the first paragraph of John Bunyan, Discourse on Prayer. Bunyan's original sentence reads: "It is the opener of the heart of God, and a means by which the soul, though empty, is filled."

„The wish to talk to God is absurd. We cannot talk to one we cannot comprehend — and we cannot comprehend God; we can only believe in Him.“

—  Immanuel Kant German philosopher 1724 - 1804

A lecture at Königsberg (1775), as quoted in A New Dictionary of Quotations on Historical Principles from Ancient and Modern Sources (1946) by H. L. Mencken, p. 955
Контексте: The wish to talk to God is absurd. We cannot talk to one we cannot comprehend — and we cannot comprehend God; we can only believe in Him. The uses of prayer are thus only subjective.

„no one talks more passionately about his rights than he who in the depths of his soul doubts whether he has any“

—  Friedrich Nietzsche, книга Human, All Too Human

I.597
Human, All Too Human (1878)
Контексте: No one talks more passionately about his rights than he who in the depths of his soul doubts whether he has any. By enlisting passion on his side he wants to stifle his reason and its doubts: thus he will acquire a good conscience and with it success among his fellow men.
