Religion Quotes

from thousands of famous people

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
To Attempt To Be Religious Without Practicing A Specific Religion Is As Possible As Attempting To Speak Without A Specific Language.
~ George Santayana
Keep Thy Religion To Thyself.
~ George Carlin
Present Your Religion To A Little Child, Set Him In The Midst Of Those Who Profess It. If It Frightens Him, And Freezes The Smiles On His Lips, Then Whatever Sort Of Religion It Is, It Is Not Christianity.
~ Unknown
A Myth Is A Religion In Which No One Any Longer Believes.
~ James Feibleman
Ethical Religion Can Be Real Only To Those Who Are Engaged In Ceaseless Efforts At Moral Improvement. By Moving Upward We Acquire Faith In An Upward Movement, Without Limit.
~ Felix Adle
Matters Of Religion Should Never Be Matters Of Controversy. We Neither Argue With A Lover About His Taste, Nor Condemn Him, If We Are Just, For Knowing So Human A Passion.
~ George Santayana
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
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 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
I Conceive The Essential Task Of Religion To Be To Develop The Consciences, The Ideals, And The Aspirations Of Mankind.
~ Robert Millikan
Think Of How Many Religions Attempt To Validate Themselves With Prophecy. Think Of How Many People Rely On These Prophecies, However Vague, However Unfulfilled, To Support Or Prop Up Their Beliefs. Yet Has There Ever Been A Religion With The Prophetic Accuracy And Reliability Of Science?
~ Carl Sagan
