“What is it then that this desire and this inability proclaim to us, but that there was once in man a true happiness of which there now remain to him only the mark and empty trace, which he in vain tries to fill from all his surroundings, seeking from things absent the help he does not obtain in things present? But these are all inadequate, because the infinite abyss can only be filled by an infinite and immutable object, that is to say, only by God Himself.”  from the Pensees of Blaise Pascal 1623-1662.

“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.”

from the Epistle of James the Just (the brother of Jesus) c. 45

“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”  from Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis 1898-1963.

“They do not belong to this world any more than I do.”

–Jesus from the Gospel of John 17:16

“God, you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you.” from the Confessions of St Augustine 354-430.

“Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest… Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

 -Jesus Christ, the Anointed One from Matthew 11:28-29
