Spiritual Quotes

Spiritual quotes are nourishment for your soul. They remind us of our deepest values, of what’s really important, and that there’s more to life than bigger houses, expensive vacations and a closet full of clothes.  Tapping the wisdom of authors, bishops and, of course, Guideposts readers, these spiritual quotes will help you feel God’s presence and open the door to Him in your life.
