Favorite AA Passages
All passages below are from the book Alcoholics Anonymous unless otherwise stated.

God could and would if He were sought. Page 60

You were 100% hopeless apart from divine help. Page 43

There is One who has all power-that One is God. May you find Him now! Page 59

If there was a Devil, he seemed the Boss Universal, and he certainly had me.
Page 11

All went well for a time, but he failed to enlarge his spiritual life. Page 35

The Lord has been so wonderful to me curing me of this terrible disease that I just want to keep telling people about it, has been a sort of golden text for the A.A. program and for me. Page 191

For if an alcoholic failed to perfect and enlarge his spiritual life through
work and self-sacrifice for others, he could not survive the certain trials
and low spots ahead. Page 14

The point is, that we are willing to grow along spiritual lines. Page 60

The Bible was stressed as reading material, of course. Page 151 Dr. Bob and the Good Old Timers

You may be suffering from an illness which only a spiritual experience will
conquer. Page 44

After a while we had to face the fact that we must find a spiritual basis of
life - or else. Page 44

We have been spiritually sick. Page 64

What we really have is a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our
spiritual condition. Page 85

Stress the spiritual feature freely. Page 93

abandoned. Page 48

But life was not easy for the two friends. Plenty of difficulties presented
themselves. Both saw that they must keep spiritually active. Page 156

The way you fellows put this spiritual stuff makes sense. I'm ready to do
business. Page 159

material well-being always followed spiritual progress; it never preceded. Page 127

Assuming we are spiritually fit, we can do all sorts of things alcoholics
are not supposed to do. People have said we must not go where liquor is
served; we must not have it in our homes; we must shun friends who drink; we
must avoid moving pictures which show drinking scenes; we must not go into
bars; our friends must hide their bottles if we go to their houses; we
mustn't think or be reminded about alcohol at all. Our experience shows that
this is not necessarily so. We meet these conditions every day. An
alcoholic who cannot meet them, still has an alcoholic mind; there is
something the matter with his spiritual status. Page 100

Every few days this doctor suggests our approach to one of his patients.
Understanding our work, he can do this with an eye to selecting those who
are willing and able to recover on a spiritual basis. Page 162

We can laugh at those who think spirituality the way of weakness. Page 68

We are convinced that a spiritual mode of living is a most powerful health
restorative. Page 133

We had to fearlessly face the proposition that either God is everything or else He is nothing. God either is, or He isn't. What was our choice to be? Page 53
