Religion quotes
Religion
There are those, and, thanks to Almighty God, they are to be numbered by tens of thousands, who will not perplex themselves with questionings; simple, genial hearts, who try to do what good they can in the world, and meddle not with matters too high for them; people whose religion is not abstruse but deep, not noisy but intense, not aggressive but laboriously useful; people who have the same habit of mind as the early Christians seem to have worn, ere yet Catholic truth had been defined in formulae, when the Apostles' Creed was symbol enough for the Church, and men were orthodox in heart rather than exact in head. For such it is enough if a fellow-creature loves Him whom they love, and serves Him whom they serve. Personal affection and loyalty to the same unseen Being is to them a communion of saints both real and actual, in the genial warmth of which all minor differences of opinion vanish. . . .

- Preface to Tauler's Sermons. 1854.
We are all Greeks. Our laws, our literature, our religion, our arts, have their root in Greece.

- Percy Bysshe Shelley
The fatal trait of the times is the divorce between religion and morality.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Since the whole affair had become one of religion, the vanquished were of course exterminated.

- Voltaire
In England there are sixty different religions and only one sauce.

- Francesco Caracciolo
I am a Millionaire. That is my religion.

- George Bernard Shaw
People in general are equally horrified at hearing the Christian religion doubted, and at seeing it practiced.

- Butler, Samuel
Selfishness is the only real atheism; unselfishness the only real religion.

- Zangwill, Israel
Mayonnaise: One of the sauces which serve the French in place of a state religion.

- Ambrose Bierce
A glorious Church is like a magnificent feast; there is all the variety that may be, but every one chooses out a dish or two that he likes, and lets the rest alone: how glorious soever the Church is, every one chooses out of it his own religion, by which he governs himself, and lets the rest alone.

- Selden, John
Those who believe in their truth -- the only ones whose imprint is retained by the memory of men -- leave the earth behind them strewn with corpses. Religions number in their ledgers more murders than the bloodiest tyrannies account for, and those whom humanity has called divine far surpass the most conscientious murderers in their thirst for slaughter.

- Cioran, E. M.
Modern bodybuilding is ritual, religion, sport, art, and science, awash in Western chemistry and mathematics. Defying nature, it surpasses it.

- Paglia, Camille
I conceive the essential task of religion to be "to develop the consciences, the ideals, and the aspirations of mankind".

- Robert Millikan
A little philosophy inclineth man's mind to atheism, But depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion.

- Sir Francis Bacon
But is it not the fact that religion emanates from the nature, from the moral state of the individual? Is it not therefore true that unless the nature be completely exercised, the moral state harmonized, the religion cannot be healthy?

- Martineau, Harriet
The more I study religions the more I am convinced that man never worshipped anything but himself

- Sir Richard F. Burton
The principle of liberty and equality, if coupled with mere selfishness, will make men only devils, each trying to be independent that he may fight only for his own interest. And here is the need of religion and its power, to bring in the principle of benevolence and love to men.

- John Randolph
All religions have based morality on obedience, that is to say, on voluntary slavery. That is why they have always been more pernicious than any political organization. For the latter makes use of violence, the former -- of the corruption of the will.

- Herzen, Alexander
Religion is for those who don't want to go to Hell. Spirituality is for those of us who have already been through it.

In full view of his television audience, he preached a new religion -- or a new form of Christianity -- based on faith in financial miracles and in a Heaven here on earth with a water slide and luxury hotels. It was a religion of celebrity and showmanship and fun, which made a mockery of all puritanical standards and all canons of good taste. Its standard was excess, and its doctrines were tolerance and freedom from accountability.
