«[The haggadah] was made to teach, and it will continue to teach. And it might teach a lot more than just the Exodus story."»

Geraldine Brooks

«The trouble with Communism is the Communists, just as the trouble with Christianity is the Christians.»

H.L. Mencken

«Atheism is a lack of belief...what about the powers of darkness, and that of light, will you trace both to nothing? Then you must have created yourself.»

Michael Bassey Johnson

«Fervent Christians are always remembering themselves as - and thus, by extension, judging everyone else outside their sect to be - lost and hopeless and just barely clinging to any kind of interior sense of value or reason or even to go on living, before they were 'saved.»

David Foster Wallace

«I consider it an extremely dangerous doctrine, because the more likely we are to assume that the solution comes from the outside, the less likely we are to solve our problems ourselves.»

Carl Sagan

«If you think your religion requires discrimination, you're probably misreading your faith.»

DaShanne Stokes

«Religion is like language or dress. We gravitate toward the practices with which we were raised. In the end, though, we are all proclaiming the same thing. That life has meaning. That we are grateful for the power that created us.»

Dan Brown

«We stand hand-clasped, our faces quite blank, as if this were not a nightmare that tells me, as clearly as if it were written in letters of fire, what ending a girl may expect if she defies the rules of men and thinks she can make her own destiny. I am here not only to witness what happens to a heretic. I am here to witness what happens to a woman who thinks she knows more than men.»

Philippa Gregory

«The existence of guilty sense is so»

Toba Beta

«I shouldn't be surprised. Catholicism is the ultimate loophole religion (sin, confess, repeat), so it makes sense that a priest would know better than anyone how to work the angles. Still, when you go to confession and say, "Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned," you don't expect him to say, "So, who hasn't?»

Marc Acito

«The Book revealed to Muhammad is one and unique of its kind. It has left indelible impression on the hearts of humanity. Nothing can overcome its majesty. The Quran has given new dimensions to human thinking - Surprising reforms, stunning success! The power that created in Muslims a ravenous appetite for knowledge sprung from the Quran.»

Billy Graham

«God is as real as a station wagon.»

Peggy Payne

«We need to think about faith, religion, and spirituality in a new way. When I grew up I was taught that religion was about what we believed. What made my denomination different (and correct, of course) was our sound doctrine. We were right. This made religion too much about being right, about us and them. Too much attention then goes into defending our beliefs.»

Peter Morales

«Blasphemy is the crime of not taking someone's beliefs as seriously as they do.»

Jasper Sole

«Don't you love Jesus?' Well, I thought an' I thought an' finally I says, 'No, I don't know nobody name' Jesus. I know a bunch of stories, but I only love people.»

John Steinbeck

«No religion is perfect, not after man gets through with it.»

Christopher Pike

«The Bible is the one book we’ve most succeeded in having them never read as a book. Keep it that way.»

Geoffrey Wood

«Is man merely a mistake of God's? Or God merely a mistake of man?»

Friedrich Nietzsche

«I don't believe in angels and I have trouble with the whole God thing. I don't want to say I don't believe in God but I don't think I do. But I believe in people who do.»

Billy Connolly

«Bliss and suffering, it seems, always go hand in hand.»

Kentetsu Takamori

«Doubt isn't the opposite of faith; it is an element of faith.»

Paul Tillich

Philip Pullman

«In all of living, have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.»

Gordon B. Hinckley

«These lecture provide material for the consideration of common factors, in theory and in development, from the viewpoint of the idea of surrender to the Divine Will, reviewing some aspects of the interplay between Christians and Moslems, and introducing material from and about Sufis.»

Idries Shah

«The president of the United States has claimed, on more than one occasion, to be in dialogue with God. If he said that he was talking to God through his hairdryer, this would precipitate a national emergency. I fail to see how the addition of a hairdryer makes the claim more ridiculous or offensive.»

Sam Harris

«To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us - and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him.»

Thomas Merton

«The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.»

James Madison

«Whether we accept it or not, this will likely be the century that determines what the optimal human population is for our planet. It will come about in one of two ways:»
