Religion Quotes

Sex is the mysticism of materialism and the only possible religion in a materialistic society.

Malcolm Muggeridge

Businesses may come and go, but religion will last forever, for in no other endeavor does the consumer blame himself for product failure

Park and open-space efforts can be described as an institutional reflection of the principal means by which urban man has historically engaged in the Edenic search. He has, since the beginnings of civilization, sought gardeners in his cities, a pastoral landscape outside of his cities, and wilderness for retreat away from his cities. Baghdad boasts a thousand gardens; Alexander set aside one quarter of his North African city as a park;...wilderness served as retreat for Jesus of Nazareth, as it did later for the Waldenisians and the Franciscans; and mediation in the wilderness is a common theme in Far Eastern cultures. Thus, there is good evidence that a prosperity for greenery as a substitute Eden in urban civilizations is not a particularity of any single race, religion, or national culture.

Albert Schweitzer

Paul Keller

Patriotism is a superstition, one far more injurious, brutal and inhumane than religion.

Gustave Herve

Religion and nationalism, as well as any custom and any belief however absurd and degrading, if it only connects the individual with others, are refuges from what man most dreads: isolation.

Erich Fromm

Christianity is the only religion on earth that has felt that omnipotence made God incomplete. Christianity alone has felt that God, to be wholly God must be a rebel as well as a king.

G.K. Chesterton

I think flying planes into a building was a faith-based initiative. I think religion is a neurological disorder.
