"I am a Westerner. We're not going to change the West by going East. The East has a lot to teach us, but essentially it's like a mirror, saying, hey, can't you see what's here in your own religion, what are you, stupid?"
"This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple the philosophy is kindness."Matthew Fox on Dalai Lama
"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."Matthew Fox on Mahatma Gandhi
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."Matthew Fox on C. S. Lewis
"Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither."Matthew Fox on C. S. Lewis
"I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is."Matthew Fox on Albert Camus
"If you look closely at a tree you'll notice it's knots and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully."
"Beauty saves. Beauty heals. Beauty motivates. Beauty unites. Beauty returns us to our origins, and here lies the ultimate act of saving, of healing, of overcoming dualism."
"Do not confuse beauty with beautiful. Beautiful is a human judgment. Beauty is All. The difference is everything."
"I'm an actor. I try to play a character in a really cool story, the very best I can."
"I don't think that fundamentalism has anything to do with Jesus Christ. They call themselves Christians, but if that's Christian, count me out. Fundamentalism is built on fear and greed. They're telling you to give them your money otherwise you're going to hell."
