The following quotations, selected by Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian of the Baha'i Faith, from Baha'i Scriptures, are inscribed over the alcoves and entrances to the Baha'i House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinois.

The Scriptures of a religion are its very heart and soul. They come not from human beings, but from the heart of heaven. They are the hallmark of God's Messengers, the most evident sign of their greatness. Anyone interested in knowing Baha'u'llah should study His writings diligently. He invites the seekers of truth again and again to test Him by His works-- by the heavenly fruits He bears. As Christ declared, a tree must be judged by its fruits. If the fruits are good, the tree must be good. (2:23)
