Religion quotes
Religion
Religion is meant to be bread for daily use, not cake for special occasions.

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
INADMISSIBLE, adj. Not competent to be considered. Said of certain kinds of testimony which juries are supposed to be unfit to be entrusted with, and which judges, therefore, rule out, even of proceedings before themselves alone. Hearsay evidence is inadmissible because the person quoted was unsworn and is not before the court for examination; yet most momentous actions, military, political, commercial and of every other kind, are daily undertaken on hearsay evidence. There is no religion in the world that has any other basis than hearsay evidence. Revelation is hearsay evidence; that the Scriptures are the word of God we have only the testimony of men long dead whose identity is not clearly established and who are not known to have been sworn in any sense. Under the rules of evidence as they now exist in this country, no single assertion in the Bible has in its support any evidence admissible in a court of law. It cannot be proved that the battle of Blenheim ever was fought, that there was such as person as Julius Caesar, such an empire as Assyria. But as records of courts of justice are admissible, it can easily be proved that powerful and malevolent magicians once existed and were a scourge to mankind. The evidence (including confession) upon which certain women were convicted of witchcraft and executed was without a flaw; it is still unimpeachable. The judges'decisions based on it were sound in logic and in law. Nothing in any existing court was ever more thoroughly proved than the charges of witchcraft and sorcery for which so many suffered death. If there were no witches, human testimony and human reason are alike destitute of value.

- Ambrose Bierce
The true meaning of religion is thus, not simply morality, but morality touched by emotion.

- Arnold, Matthew
Though it is very important for man as an individual that his religion should be true, that is not the case for society. Society has nothing to fear or hope from another life; what is most important for it is not that all citizens profess the true religion but that they should profess religion.

- Tocqueville, Alexis De
What are all political and social institutions, but always a religion, which in realizing itself, becomes incarnate in the world?

- Quinet, Edgar
DRUIDS, n. Priests and ministers of an ancient Celtic religion which did not disdain to employ the humble allurement of human sacrifice. Very little is now known about the Druids and their faith. Pliny says their religion, originating in Britain, spread eastward as far as Persia. Caesar says those who desired to study its mysteries went to Britain. Caesar himself went to Britain, but does not appear to have obtained any high preferment in the Druidical Church, although his talent for human sacrifice was considerable. Druids performed their religious rites in groves, and knew nothing of church mortgages and the season-ticket system of pew rents. They were, in short, heathens and -- as they were once complacently catalogued by a distinguished prelate of the Church of England -- Dissenters.

- Ambrose Bierce
Religion is as effectually destroyed by bigotry as by indifference.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Now, we deny not, but that politicians may sometimes abuse religion, and make it serve for the promoting of their own private interests and designs; which yet they could not do so well neither, were the thing itself a mere cheat and figment of their own, and had no reality at all in nature, nor anything solid at the bottom of it.

- Cudworth, Ralph J.
When you see a great deal of religion displayed in his shop window, you may depend on it, that he keeps a very small stock of it within.

- Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
For this is one of the ancientest laws among them; that no man shall be blamed for reasoning in the maintenance of his own religion.

- More, Thomas
Money will buy a bed but not sleep; books but not brains; food but not appetite; finery but not beauty; a house but not a home; medicine but not health; luxuries but not culture; amusements but not happiness; religion but not salvation; a passport to everywhere but heaven.

When its a question of money, everybody is of the same religion.

- Voltaire
Religion is in the heart, not in the knees.

- Jerrold, Douglas William
Religions are the great fairy tales of conscience.

- Santayana, George
No Christian and, indeed, no historian could accept the epigram which defines religion as'what a man does with his solitude.'

- C. S. Lewis
One strength of the communist system of the East is that it has some of the character of a religion and inspires the emotions of a religion.

- Einstein, Albert
Religion is a candle inside a multicolored lantern. Everyone looks through a particular color, but the candle is always there.

- Mohammed Neguib
Religion and education are no match for evil without the grace of God.

- Hayden, B. R.
Passion is univeral humanity. Without it religion, history, art, and romance would be useless.

- Honore de Balzac
