Inspirational Spiritual Quotes

Welcome to this spiritual quotes page. Spirituality begins when we start asking ourselves questions about life, the universe, why we are here, and what happens when we die?

You may not find all the answers here, however, I think the secret to spirituality is the 'I' part, you need to be genuinely seeking the truth, questioning everything you were taught in school or church, and looking inside yourself for the answers.
