Who by?

Who do you think said the following?

“Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.”

“Vem som helst kan räkna antalet kärnor i ett äpple. Bara Gud kan räkna antalet äpplen i en kärna.”

“N’importe qui peut compter le nombre de pépins dans une pomme. Seul un grand visionnaire peut compter le nombre de pommes dans un pépin.”

Something as clever as that must surely be taken from the Bible and/or the 1989 (Western?) edition of the Meaning of the Holy Qur’an, right? You’re almost there…


Answer: “The Reverend Dr. Robert Harold Schuller (born September 16, 1926), an American televangelist and pastor known around the world through his weekly broadcast ‘The Hour of Power'”. And I who always hated watching “Praise the Lord” shows on TV.

“…the coming century will most surely witness either a coalition or a collision between Islam and Christianity… True believers in God must move our society and our world from incompatibility to compatibility; from intolerance to tolerance; positive Christians and Muslims becoming partners in peace.” []
