Search Spiritual Quotations
S&P's Spiritual Quotations Database contains more than 10,000 spiritual quotations, mostly from books published in the last 25 years.
This search engine will help you find good quotes for your speaking, teaching, preaching, and writing. Unlike so many quotes on the Internet, we give you the sources. Use the links with each quote to read our review of the book where we found it and to discover more works by the same author.
Another collection of shorter quotes come from Frederic Brussat's Twitter feed and are tailor-made for social media.
Here are some tips for good searches in the Spiritual Quotations Database.
• If you want a quote by a particular author, use the name fields and narrow the search by adding a book title.
• For quotes on religious terms, emotions. experiences, occasions, relationships, and other themes, search for one of the 700+ keywords S&P editors use in our coding. A few quotes are also coded by Type of Content.
• Finally, to find quotes for personal inspiration and reflection, we recommend searching for quotes on one of the Practices or from one of the Traditions.
