An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





Worship is transcendent wonder.


Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881, Scottish philosopher, author)


When we really worship anything, we love not only its clearness but its obscurity. We exult in its very invisibility.


Gilbert K. Chesterton (1874-1936, British author)


Reverence is the highest quality of man's nature and that individual, or nation, which has it slightly developed, is so far unfortunate. It is a strong spiritual instinct, and seeks to form channels for itself where none exists; thus Americans, in the dearth of other objects to worship, fall to worshiping themselves.


Lydia M. Child (1802-1880, American abolitionist, writer, editor)


It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow.


Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933, American President (30th))


Try to treat with equal love all the people with whom you have relations. Thus the abyss between 'myself' and 'yourself' will be filled in, which is the goal of all religious worship.


Sri Anandamayi Ma (1896-1982, Bengali spiritual teacher)


I daresay anything can be made holy by being sincerely worshipped.


Iris Murdoch (1919-, British novelist, philosopher)
