You have no right to dispense with morality unless you submit yourself to a law that is higher and much more rigorous than any moral law.

28 May 1947


You can break the moral rules only when you observe the Divine Law.


Moral laws have only a very relative value from the point of view of Truth. Besides, they vary considerably according to country, climate and period.

Discussions are generally sterile and without productive value. If each one makes a personal effort of perfect sincerity, uprightness and good-will, the best conditions for the work will be realised.

August 1966


Never judge on appearances, still less on gossip.

What is moral in one country is immoral in another.

Service to the Divine exacts a sincerity of self-sacrifice unknown to any morality.

26 February 1969
