Motivational Quotes

Religion

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 Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Religion

1.
The true meaning of religion is thus not simply morality, but morality touched by emotion.
Matthew Arnold

2.
We are on the side of religion as opposed to religions, and we are among those who believe in the wretched inadequacy of sermons and the sublimity of prayer.
Hugo, Victor

3.
A wise architect observed that you could break the laws of architectural art provided you had mastered them first. That would apply to religion as well as to art. Ignorance of the past does not guarantee freedom from its imperfections.
Niebuhr, Reinhold

4.
Religion is a temper, not a pursuit.
Martineau, Harriet

5.
I do benefits for all religions -- I'd hate to blow the hereafter on a technicality.
Hope, Bob

6.
Men despise religion. They hate it and are afraid it may be true.
Pascal, Blaise

7.
A maker of idols is never an idolater.
Proverb, Chinese

8.
The religion that is afraid of science dishonors God and commits suicide.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
A myth is a religion in which no one any longer believes.
James Feibleman

10.
Don't try to tear down other people's religion about their ears, Build up your own perfect structure of truth, and invite your listeners to enter in and enjoy it's glories.
Young, Brigham

11.
When the soul drifts uncertainly between life and the dream, between the mind's disorder and the return to cool reflection, it is in religious thought that we should seek consolation.
Nerval, Gerard De

12.
Whatever God's dream about man may be, it seems certain it cannot come true unless man cooperates.
Stella Terrill Mann

13.
I am determined that my children shall be brought up in their father's religion, if they can find out what it is.
Charles Lamb

14.
I think that the leaf of a tree, the meanest insect on which we trample, are in themselves arguments more conclusive than any which can be adduced that some vast intellect animates Infinity.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe

15.
Toleration is the best religion.
Hugo, Victor

16.
Oh senseless man, who cannot possibly make a worm, and yet will make Gods by dozens.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

17.
There is nothing more innately human than the tendency to transmute what has become customary into what has been divinely ordained.
Lafollette, Suzanne

18.
I've often thought the Bible should have a disclaimer in the front saying this is fiction.
Ian McKellen

19.
Religion enables us to ignore nothingness and get on with the jobs of life.
Updike, John

20.
With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
Steven Weinberg

21.
The opposite of the religious fanatic is not the fanatical atheist but the gentle cynic who cares not whether there is a god or not.
Eric Hoffer

22.
It is a fine thing to establish one's own religion in one's heart, not to be dependent on tradition and second-hand ideals. Life will seem to you, later, not a lesser, but a greater thing.
D. H. Lawrence

23.
Angels dancing on the head of a pin dissolve into nothingness at the bedside of a dying child.
Waiter Rant

24.
Religions, which condemn the pleasures of sense, drive men to seek the pleasures of power. Throughout history power has been the vice of the ascetic.
Russell, Bertrand

25.
The true meaning of religion is thus, not simply morality, but morality touched by emotion.
Arnold, Matthew

26.
Those who seek consolation in existing churches often pay for their peace of mind with a tacit agreement to ignore a great deal of what is known about the way the world works.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

27.
Religion, oh, just another of those numerous failures resulting from an attempt to popularize art.
Pound, Ezra

28.
My religion consists of a humble admiration of the unlimitable superior who reveals Himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.
Einstein, Albert

29.
Give us a religion that will help us to live -- we can die without assistance.
Hubbard, Elbert

30.
When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad, and that is my religion.
Abraham Lincoln

31.
For it is with the mysteries of our religion, as with wholesome pills for the sick, which swallowed whole, have the virtue to cure; but chewed, are for the most part cast up again without effect.
Hobbes, Thomas

32.
The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.
Oscar Wilde

33.
Religion is the opium of the masses.
Marx, Karl

34.
Never confuse the faith with the supposedly faithful.
Randy K. Milholland

35.
Clergymen have much the same in their breeches as other men.
Elizabeth Aston

36.
Talk to me about the truth of religion and I'll listen gladly. Talk to me about the duty of religion and I'll listen submissively. But don't come talking to me about the consolations of religion or I shall suspect that you don't understand.
Lewis, C. S.

37.
If religion is only human, and its form is man's form, it follows that everything in religion is true.
Chartier, Emile-Auguste

38.
My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.
Albert Einstein

39.
For centuries, theologians have been explaining the unknowable in terms of the-not-worth-knowing.
H. L. Mencken

40.
All the sweetness of religion is conveyed to the world by the hands of story-tellers and image-makers. Without their fictions the truths of religion would for the multitude be neither intelligible nor even apprehensible; and the prophets would prophesy and the teachers teach in vain.
Shaw, George Bernard

41.
My mom grew up in Spanish Harlem and the Bronx and gave me an invaluable piece of advice for dealing with people in New York - if someone∆s bugging you just act crazy. I∆ve modified her approach somewhat. Public displays of religiosity work just as well as feigning psychosis.
Waiter Rant

42.
My religion? Well, my dear, I am a Millionaire. That is my religion.
Shaw, George Bernard

43.
And lips say God be pitiful, who never said, God be praised.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

44.
Religion is the state of being grasped by an ultimate concern, a concern which qualifies all other concerns as preliminary and which itself contains the answer to the question of a meaning of our life.
Tillich, Paul

45.
It is certain that if you would have the whole secret of a people, you must enter into the intimacy of their religion.
Quinet, Edgar

46.
There must be something solemn, serious, and tender about any attitude which we denominate religious. If glad, it must not grin or snicker; if sad, it must not scream or curse.
James, William

47.
I count religion but a childish toy, and hold there is no sin but innocence.
Marlowe, Christopher

48.
The secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending, then having the two as close together as possible.
George Burns

49.
It is not God that is worshipped but the group or authority that claims to speak in His name. Sin becomes disobedience to authority not violation of integrity.
Radhakrishnan, Sir Sarvepalli

50.
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
Marx, Karl
