religion

Albert Einstein
It was the experience of mystery, even if mixed with fear, that engendered religion.
To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty...this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.
Aldous Huxley
Maybe this world is another planet's Hell.
Alexis De Tocqueville
Though it is very important for man as an individual that his religion should be true, that is not the case for society. Society has nothing to fear or hope from another life; what is most important for it is not that all citizens profess the true religion but that they should profess religion.
The main business of religions is to purify, control, and restrain that excessive and exclusive taste for well-being which men acquire in times of equality.

Ambrose Bierce
Pray, v.: To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled on behalf of a single petitioner confessedly unworthy.
Ayn Rand
You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality.
Benjamin Franklin
I think vital religion has always suffered when orthodoxy is more regarded than virtue. The scriptures assure me that at the last day we shall not be examined on what we thought but what we did.
C.S. Lewis
If these holy places, things, and days cease to remind us, if they obliterate our awareness that all ground is holy and every bush (could we but perceive it) a Burning Bush, then the hallows begin to do harm. Hence both the necessity, and the perennial danger, of 'religion.'
The gap between those who worship different gods is not so wide as the gap between those who worship and those who don't.
Talk to me about the truth of religion and I'll listen gladly. Talk to me about the duty of religion and I'll listen submissively. But don't come talking to me about the consolations of religion or I shall suspect that you don't understand.
Of all bad men religious bad men are the worst.

Calvin Coolidge
It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow.
D.H. Lawrence
It is a fine thing to establish one's own religion in one's heart, not to be dependent on tradition and second-hand ideals. Life will seem to you, later, not a lesser, but a greater thing.
Edmund Burke
Religion is essentially the art and the theory of the remaking of man. Man is not a finished creation.
Nothing is so fatal to religion as indifference.
