„But I didn't believe in the theory that human beings – thinking, loving beings – originated from fish that sprouted legs and crawled out of the sea. Or that human beings began as single-celled organisms that developed into monkeys who eventually swung down from trees; I believed we came about through a random process, but were created by God.“

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

— Pierre Teilhard De Chardin French philosopher and Jesuit priest 1881 - 1955
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.
