Religion Quotes

from thousands of famous people

The West Won The World Not By The Superiority Of Its Ideas Or Values Or Religion But Rather By Its Superiority In Applying Organized Violence. Westerners Often Forget This Fact, Non-Westerners Never Do.
~ Samuel P. Huntington
Give A Man Religion Without Reminding Him Of His Filth, And The Result Will Be Arrogance In A Three- Piece Suit. Max Lucado.
~ Max Lucado, The Applause of Heaven
To Die For A Religion Is Easier Than To Live It Absolutely.
~ Jorge Luis Borges
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
There Is A Growing Suspicion That What The World Needs Now Is A Religion That Will Cover The Other Six Days Of The Week.
~ Author Unknown
All Outward Forms Of Religion Are Almost Useless, And Are The Causes Of Endless Strife. Believe There Is A Great Power Silently Working All Things For Good, Behave Yourself, And Never Mind The Rest.
~ Beatrix Potte
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
A Cult Is A Religion With No Political Powe.
~ Tom Wolfe
Say Nothing Of My Religion. It Is Known To God And Myself Alone. Its Evidence Before The World Is To Be Sought In My Life: If It Has Been Honest And Dutiful To Society The Religion Which Has Regulated It Cannot Be A Bad One.
~ Thomas Jefferson
There Is No Higher Religion Than Human Service. To Work For The Common Good Is The Greatest Creed.
~ Woodrow Wilson
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
History Does Not Record Anywhere At Any Time A Religion That Has Any Rational Basis. Religion Is A Crutch For People Not Strong Enough To Stand Up To The Unknown Without Help. But, Like Dandruff, Most People Do Have A Religion And Spend Time And Money On It And Seem To Derive Considerable Pleasure From Fiddling With It.
~ Robert Heinlein, Time Enough for Love (1972)
