The water we drink has to be purified, but look at the trash we feed our minds.
— Unknown

The more we come out and do good to others, the more our hearts will be purified, and God will be in them.
Swami Vivekananda purified quote

The elephant, not only the largest but the most intelligent of animals, provides us with an excellent example. It is faithful and tenderly loving to the female of its choice, mating only every third year and then for no more than five days, and so secretly as never to be seen, until, on the sixth day, it appears and goes at once to wash its whole body in the river, unwilling to return to the herd until thus purified. Such good and modest habits are an example to husband and wife.
— St. Francis De Sales

A vow is a purely religious act which cannot be taken in a fit of passion. It can be taken only with a mind purified and composed and with God as witness.
— Mahatma Gandhi

It seems obvious to me that the notion of God has never been anything but a kind of ideal projection, a reflection upward of the human personality, and that theology never has been and never can be anything but a more and more purified mythology.
— purified quotation by Alfred Loisy
