Donald Trump attended Peale's church while growing up, as well as marrying his first wife Ivana there. Peale's ideas and techniques were controversial, and he received frequent criticism both from church figures and from the psychiatric profession.

—  Norman Vincent Peale
Stay Alive All Your Life (1957), Context: Every individual forms his own estimate of himself and that basic estimate goes far toward determining what he becomes.

„God is vitality. God is life. God is energy.“

—  Norman Vincent Peale
Context: Who is God? Some theological being? He is so much greater than theology. God is vitality. God is life. God is energy. As you breathe God in, as you visualize His energy, you will be reenergized! "No More Stress or Tension" in Plus : The Magazine of Positive Thinking (May 1986), p. 22

„Just a moment ago nature put on one of its most spectacular demonstrations.“

—  Norman Vincent Peale
Power Of The Plus Factor (1987), Context: Just a moment ago nature put on one of its most spectacular demonstrations. The widest rainbow I have ever seen stretched from the lake over a high snow-clad mountain to touch down in a deep valley in the Alps. There was about this gigantic rainbow a deep benediction of peace and hope. But as ineffable as nature is in the effect of natural beauty on the mind, it cannot match the peace of God in its healing effect on the human mind. <!-- p. 180
