Religion Quotes

from thousands of famous people

I Find The Whole Business Of Religion Profoundly Interesting. But It Does Mystify Me That Otherwise Intelligent People Take It Seriously.
~ Douglas Adams, Salmon of Doubt, 2002
Those Who Say Religion Has Nothing To Do With Politics Do Not Know What Religion Is.
~ Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Existence, As We Know It, Is Full Of Sorrow. To Mention Only One Minor Point Every Man Is A Condemned Criminal, Only He Does Not Know The Date Of His Execution. This Is Unpleasant For Every Man. Consequently Every Man Does Everything Possible To Postpone The Date, And Would Sacrifice Anything That He Has If He Could Reverse The Sentence. Practically All Religions And All Philosophies Have Started Thus Crudely, By Promising Their Adherents Some Such Reward As Immortality. No Religion Has Failed Hitherto By Not Promising Enough The Present Breaking Up Of All Religions Is Due To The Fact That People Have Asked To See The Securities. Men Have Even Renounced The Important Material Advantages Which A Well-organized Religion May Confer Upon A State, Rather Than Acquiesce In Fraud Or Falsehood, Or Even In Any System Which, If Not Proved Guilty, Is At Least Unable To Demonstrate Its Innocence. Being More Or Less Bankrupt, The Best Thing That We Can Do Is To Attack The Problem Afresh Without Preconceived Ideas. Let Us Begin By Doubting Every Statement. Let Us Find A Way Of Subjecting Every Statement To The Test Of Experiment. Is There Any Truth At All In The Claims Of Various Religions Let Us Examine The Question.
~ Aleister Crowley

A Society Like Ours, Which Professes No One Religion And Has Allowed All Religions To Decay, Which Indulges Freedom To The Point Of License And Individualism To The Point Of Anarchy, Needs All The Support That Responsible, Cultivated Homes Can Furnish. I Hope Your Generation Will Provide A Firmer Shelter For Civilized Standards.
~ Alan Simpson
It Can Be Shown That For Any Nutty Theory, Beyond-the-fringe Political View, Or Strange Religion There Exists A Proponent On The Net. The Proof Is Left As An Exercise For Your Kill-file.
~ unattributed truth from r. g. frp
I Conceive The Essential Task Of Religion To Be To Develop The Consciences, The Ideals, And The Aspirations Of Mankind.
~ Robert Millikan
Statesmen May Plan And Speculate For Liberty But It Is Religion And Morality Alone That Can Establish The Principles Upon Which Freedom Can Securely Stand.
~ John Adams
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
Nothing Shocks Me More In The Men Of Religion And Their Flocks Than Their Pretensions To Be The Only Religious People.
~ Jean Guehenno
Keep Thy Religion To Thyself.
~ George Carlin
To Feel The Right Emotions Is Fully As Important As To Hold The Right Ideas, And The Great Service Of Religion Is The Development Of The Right Emotions.
~ Geoffrey Parsons
