Religion concerns matters of the heart... politics are occupied with the material things of life.

Religious matters should not be confused with politics in the present state of the world (for their interests are not identical).

Religion concerns matters of the heart, of the spirit, and of morals.

Politics are occupied with the material things of life. Religious teachers should not invade the realm of politics; they should concern themselves with the spiritual education of the people; they should ever give good counsel to men, trying to serve God and human kind; they should endeavour to awaken spiritual aspiration, and strive to enlarge the understanding and knowledge of humanity, to improve morals, and to increase the love for justice.

Just have to thank you again for starting this wondrous project. Part of my appreciation is the selection of quotations you have, part is the images, part is the syndication on my Google home page... Today, part was the warmth generated by contemplating the picture of 'Abdu'l-Baha...

Thank You!!!
