Hi. Sorry for the delay! It took me a few days to get around to this. The quotation is from the compilation _Tablets of Abdu'l-Baha_ vol. 1, page 53. The reason you haven't found it is because these are old translations and are not included in the search engines, and are not yet online. Here's the whole quotation:

+P 53

O thou who dost believe in the Unity of God!

Know verily nothing will benefit a person save the
love of the Merciful One. Nothing illuminates a man's
heart save the radiance which shines forth from the
Kingdom of God! Put away every thought and doubtful
mentioning and keep thy thoughts entirely on that
which uplifts man to the heaven of the gift of God and
that which causes every bird that belongs to the Kingdom
to soar unto the incomparable realms, the center
of everlasting grandeur in this world.
