Christian Mysticism Quotes
The kingdom of God is within you. - Jesus (Luke 17:21)

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? - 1 Corinthians 3:16

For what is Mysticism? Is it not the attempt to draw near to God, not by rites or ceremonies, but by inward disposition? Is it not merely a hard word for 'The Kingdom of Heaven is within'? Heaven is neither a place nor a time. - Florence Nightingale

In the evening of life, we will be judged on love alone. - St. John of the Cross

For the outer sense alone perceives visible things and the eye of the heart alone sees the invisible. - Richard of Saint-Victor

The soul is made of love and must ever strive to return to love. Therefore, it can never find rest nor happiness in other things. By its very nature it must seek God, who is love. - Mechthild of Magdeburg

And God said to the soul: I desired you before the world began. I desire you now as you desire me. And where the desires of two come together there love is perfected. - Mechthild of Magdeburg

I give praise to your holy Nature, Lord, for you have made my nature a sanctuary for your hiddenness and a tabernacle for your mysteries, a place where you can dwell, and a holy temple for your Divinity. - St. Isaac of Syria

This shall be a sign for you, a luminous sign of the serenity of your soul: on examining yourself, you will find yourself full of compassion for all humanity, and your heart is afflicted with pity for them, burning as though with fire, without making distinction between one person and another. - St. Isaac of Syria

52106X: Early Christian Mystics: The Divine Vision of the Spiritual Masters Early Christian Mystics: The Divine Vision of the Spiritual Masters
By Bernard McGinn / Crossroad Publishing Co.

In Early Christian Mystics, Bernard and Patricia Ferris McGinn gather together the wisdom of Christianity's greatest masters. Each section offers insight into the mystic's teachings and how we can apply that wisdom in our own lives today. The McGinns begin with the various practices mystics use for finding God. These include sacred texts, the contemplative life, and prayer. Then they guide us through transformation in God, including endless pursuit, unknowing knowing, and the Trinity, and they conclude with two prayers to guide us on our way.
