Pierre Teilhard de Chardin /čti pjér tejár d šardén/ byl francouzský náboženský myslitel a vědec, geolog a paleontolog, člen Tovaryšstva Ježíšova. Je znám především pro svůj koncept Vesmíru jako zacílené evoluce, směřující k bodu Omega, který rozmanitost světa aktivně spojuje a přitahuje. Ve svém hlavním díle Le Phénomène humain, jež mohlo vyjít až po jeho smrti, předkládá originální syntézu biblické představy Stvoření a konce světa s tím, co o evoluci víme dík moderní vědě. Jeho metoda „nereduktivní fenomenologie“ mu dovolila skloubit vědecký pohled na Vesmír jako celek s křesťanskou spiritualitou. Na jeho myšlenky navázala řada myslitelů, kteří se také snažili vytvořit soudržný obraz Vesmíru a lidstva jako celku.

„We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.“

— Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
This is attributed to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin in The Joy of Kindness (1993), by Robert J. Furey, p. 138; but it is attributed to G. I. Gurdjieff in Beyond Prophecies and Predictions: Everyone's Guide To The Coming Changes (1993) by Moira Timms, p. 62; neither cite a source. It was widely popularized by Wayne Dyer, who often quotes it in his presentations, crediting it to Chardin, as does Stephen Covey in Living the 7 Habits : Stories of Courage and Inspiration (2000), p. 47 I spent a lot of time looking for this quote in all of Chardin' books and did not find it. That is the problem with the Internet, people simply copy and paste, therefore, it is our responsibility to keep an eye on errors of this kind. Be always careful to verify quotations that do not show a source (book/magazine, and page number, etc.) Variant: We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey. The above "quotation" can be considered a paraphrase of Hegel's dictum that matter is spirit fallen into a state of self-otherness.

„What paralyzes life is lack of faith and lack of audacity. The difficulty lies not in solving problems but expressing them.“

— Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Context: What paralyzes life is lack of faith and lack of audacity. The difficulty lies not in solving problems but expressing them. And so we cannot avoid this conclusion: it is biologically evident that to gain control of passion and so make it serve spirit must be a condition of progress. Sooner or later, then, the world will brush aside our incredulity and take this step : because whatever is the more true comes out into the open, and whatever is better is ultimately realized. The day will come when, after harnessing the ether, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire. "The Evolution of Chastity" (February 1934), as translated in Toward the Future (1975) edited by by René Hague, who also suggests "space" as an alternate translation of "the ether." Variants: "One day after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity" — after all the scientific and technological achievements — "we shall harness for God the energies of love. And then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire." As quoted by R. Sargent Shriver, Jr. in his speech accepting the nomination as the Democratic candidate for vice president, in Washington, D. C. (8 August 1972); this has sometimes been published as if Shriver's interjection "after all the scientific and technological achievements" were part of the original statement, as in The New York Times (9 August 1972), p. 18 What paralyzes life is lack of faith and lack of audacity. The difficulty lies not in solving problems but identifying them. As translated in The The Ignatian Tradition (2009) edited by Kevin F. Burke, Eileen Burke-Sullivan and Phyllis Zagano, p. 86 Love is the only force which can make things one without destroying them. … Some day, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire. As quoted in Seed Sown : Theme and Reflections on the Sunday Lectionary Reading (1996) by Jay Cormier, p. 33 The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, humanity will have discovered fire. As quoted in Fire of Love : Encountering the Holy Spirit (2006) by Donald Goergen, p. 92 The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire. As quoted in Read for the Cure (2007) by Eileen Fanning, p. v

„The feminine is the most formidable of the forces of matter.“

— Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Context: I am far from denying the destructive and disintegrating forces of passion. I will go so far as to agree that apart from the reproductive function, men have hitherto used love, on the whole, as an instrument of self-corruption and intoxication. But what do these excesses prove? Because fire consumes and electricity can kill are we to stop using them? The feminine is the most formidable of the forces of matter. True enough. "Very well, then," say the moralists, "we must avoid it." "Not at all," I reply, "we take hold of it." In every domain of the real (physical, affective, intellectual) "danger" is a sign of power. Only a mountain can create a terrifying drop. The customary education of the Christian conscience tends to make us confuse tutiorism with prudence, safety with truth. Avoiding the risk of transgression has become more important to us than carrying a difficult position for God. And it is this that is killing us. "The more dangerous a thing, the more is its conquest ordained by life": it is from that conviction that the modern world has emerged; and from that our religion, too, must be reborn. "The Evolution of Chastity" (1934), as translated by René Hague in Toward the Future (1975)
