Devotion Quotes

"When we pray with a heart full of devotion, God accepts it and we receive blessings in return."
St. Gregorious Geevarghese

"A state of temperance, sobriety and justice without devotion is a cold, lifeless, insipid condition of virtue, and is rather to be styled philosophy than religion."
Joseph Addison

"Often devotion to virtue arises from sated desire."
Laurence Hope Nicolson

"A devotee who can call on God while living a householder's life is a hero indeed. God thinks: 'He is blessed indeed who prays to me in the midst of his worldly duties. He is trying to find me, overcoming a great obstacle -- pushing away, as it were, a huge block of stone weighing a ton. Such a man is a real hero."
Sri Ramakrishna
