Religion Quotes

To the mass of mankind religion of some kind is a necessity.

Alfred Russel Wallace

In encouraging other young men to come out as missionaries, do use a word of caution. One wrong-headed, conscientiously-obstinate fellow would ruin us. Humble, quiet, persevering men; men of sound, sterling talents (though, perhaps, not brilliant), of decent accomplishments, and some natural aptitude to acquire a language; men of an amiable temper, willing to take the lowest place, to be the least of all and the servants of all; men who enjoy closet religion, who live near to God, and are willing to suffer all things for Christ's sake, without being proud of it, these are the men.

Adoniram Judson

The most henious and the must cruel crimes of which history has record have been committed under the cover of religion or equally noble motives.

Mohandas K Gandhi

If there is a God, atheism must seem to Him as less of an insult than religion.

Edmond de Goncourt

Our Founding Fathers would shudder to see how easily forces outside the mainstream now seem to effortlessly push some Senate leaders toward conduct the American people don't want from their elected leaders: Abusing power. Inserting the government into our private lives. Injecting religion into debates about public policy. Jumping through hoops to ingratiate themselves to their partys base, while step by step, day by day, real problems that keep American families up at night fall by the wayside here in Washington.

John Kerry

There are two sorts of hypocrites: ones that are deceived with their outward morality and external religion; and the others are those that are deceived with false discoveries and elevation; which often cry down works, and men's own righteousness.

Jonathan Edwards

A son should inherit his father's money - not his religion; he may be too lazy to build upon a new fortune but never too slow to catch up with a new creed.

Unknown

How very heavy is the burden of human suffering, the suffering that comes of war; of so-called ethnic cleansing, of conflict in the name of religion; of foolish ideas of racial superiority; of intolerance, bigotry, and egotism.

Gordon B. Hinckley

I cannot exist without you. I am forgetful of everything but seeing you again. My life seems to stop there, I see no further. You have absorb'd me. I have a sensation at the present moment as though I were dissolving. I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for religion... I have shudder'd at it... I shudder no more. I could be martyr'd for my religion: Love is my religion. I could die for that. I could die for you. My creed is love, and you are its only tenet. You have ravish'd me away by a power I cannot resist

John Keats

Fiction is one of the few experiences where loneliness can be both confronted and relieved. Drugs, movies where stuff blows up, loud parties -- all these chase away loneliness by making me forget my name's Dave and I live in a one-by-one box of bone no other party can penetrate or know. Fiction, poetry, music, really deep serious sex, and, in various ways, religion -- these are the places (for me) where loneliness is countenanced, stared down, transfigured, treated.

David Foster Wallace

Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.

Seneca

I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.

Richard Dawkins

Abstinence is many times very helpful to the end of religion.

John Tillotson

There is no higher religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed.

Woodrow T. Wilson

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