Here are five of Warren's most inspirational quotes:

1. In his bestselling book, "The Purpose Driven Life," Warren said it is faith that will help you through tough times. "Trusting God completely means having faith that He knows what is best for your life. You expect Him to keep His promises, help you with problems, and do the impossible when necessary."

2. Sometimes sharing what hurt you and how you came through it can serve others, according to Warren in his best-selling book, "The Purpose Driven Life." "Other people are going to find healing in your wounds. Your greatest life messages and your most effective ministry will come out of your deepest hurts."

3. Warren also said in his book building a relationship with God is not done exclusively in church, "Because God is with you all the time, no place is any closer to God than the place where you are right now."

4. "God is always more interested in why we do something than in what we do. Attitudes count more than achievements."

5.
"There are a lot of bad things in life that are evil. Not everything that happens in this world is God's will, but that's why we need God in our lives. So forgiveness isn't forgetting what happened, it's about finding what good came out of it."
