„We are told by the word of the Gospel that in this His fold there are two swords—a spiritual, namely, and a temporal. […] Both swords, the spiritual and the material, therefore, are in the power of the Church; the one, indeed, to be wielded for the Church, the other by the Church; the one by the hand of the priest, the other by the hand of kings and knights, but at the will and sufferance of the priest.“
In hac ejusque potestate duos esse gladios, spiritualem videlicet et temporalem, evangelicis dictis instruimur. […] Uterque ergo est in potestate ecclesiae, spiritualis scilicet gladius et materialis. Sed is quidem pro ecclesia, ille vero ab ecclesia exercendus, ille sacerdotis, is manu regum et militum, sed ad nutum et patientiam sacerdotis.

— Papa Bonifácio VIII

„The Holy Christian Church is the principal work of God“

— Martin Luther seminal figure in Protestant Reformation 1483 - 1546
Context: The Holy Christian Church is the principal work of God, for the sake of which all things were made. In the Church, great wonders daily occur, such as the forgiveness of sins, triumph over death... the gift of righteousness and eternal life. (Commentary on Psalm 143:5) In The Lord's Service: The Grace of Covenant Renewal Worship, 2003, Jeffrey J.

„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.
