Religion

«In the search for truth,»

Eric Micha'el Leventhal


«They (religions) dread the advance of science as witches do the approach of daylight and scowl on the fatal harbinger announcing the subversions of the duperies on which they live.»

Thomas Jefferson


«Even kings and emperors, with mountains of property and oceans of wealth - these are not even equal to an ant, who does not forget God.»

Guru Nanak


«I'm not a Christian, but I have read his book.»

Bill Maher


«Common sense is no match for the voice of God.»

Jon Krakauer


«those who have loved are those that have found God»

Guru Nanak


«The church and the scientific community are fighting at times a common enemy: the truth religion cannot deny and the positivist materialist scientist is unable to explain.»

Paul Greene


«I only run from darkness when I'm not confident in my ability to shine.»

D.R. Silva


«And Priests in black gowns, were walking their rounds,»

William Blake


«We need to start asking ourselves, does religion make people narrow minded or open minded?»

Unarine Ramaru


«God is perceived by the heart, not by your reason. But what is reason? Your heart simplifying God’s guidance to fit your own needs.»

Shannon L. Alder


«Credulity is always ridiculous.»

Frances Wright


«I don't differentiate much, except in degree, between people who believe in religion from those who believe in astrology, magic or the supernatural.»

Andy Rooney


«The greatest book in the world, the Mahabharata, tells us we all have to live and die by our karmic cycle. Thus works the perfect reward-and-punishment, cause-and-effect, code of the universe. We live out in our present life what we wrote out in our last. But the great moral thriller also orders us to rage against karma and its despotic dictates. It teaches us to subvert it. To change it. It tells us we also write out our next lives as we live out our present.»

Tarun J. Tejpal


«...We lost our faith and went around wondering what life was for. If art was no more than a frustrated out-flinging of desire, if religion was no more than self-delusion, what good was life? Faith had always given us answers to all things. But it all went down the drain with Freud and Darwin. We were and still are a lost people.»

Ray Bradbury


«The secret of Buddhism is to remove all ideas, all concepts, in order for the truth to have a chance to penetrate, to reveal itself.»

Thích Nhất Hạnh


«I'll pray for you."»

Evelyn Waugh


«Charity is no substitute for justice withheld.»

Augustine of Hippo


«Far better it is for you to say: "I am a sinner," than to say: "I have no need of religion." The empty can be filled, but the self-intoxicated have no room for God.»

Fulton J. Sheen


«The only principle of Success in Life :"You must be present to win.»

Abhishek Shukla


«Jack didn’t fully get Jesus. Audrey tried to explain it, and he could repeat it back to her, word for word, but he still didn’t comprehend most of it. The best he could gather was that Jesus lived long ago, told people to be nice, and they killed him for it. At the end, he asked who was Jesus’ necromancer and if he was in the Bible, then Kaldar couldn’t stop laughing and had to sit down.»

Ilona Andrews


«Atheists are spiritual slackers, right? We are the stoners of the cosmos. We think we’re all over-intelligent, free-thinking, free-spirited, uber-cool, hippy-dippy, science-minded, leaning-to-the-left, hedonistic, children of Theodorus the Atheist. We’re all like “Dude, I don’t need no stinkin’ deity” and if we came face-to-face with the Grim Reaper himself we’d say, “No worries, Bro, let’s do this! Game over!»

T. K. Decker


«He stole glances at the heathen faces of Bodien and Gaylord, the suffering, yet oddly consoled, eyes and mouth of Basellecci, noting the brave enthusiasm of men who had never dreamed of anything very definite, and it occurred to him through the reek of his person that there was only one hope for him, and for all people who had lost, through intelligence, the hope of immortality. "We must love and delight in each other and in ourselves!" he cried.»

Edward Lewis Wallant


«If God’s suggesting that I am expected to do good and also obligated to manufacture a genuine desire for it, this boat’s sunk, still sitting on the trailer in the driveway. A stack of things need to happen before I desire to be good…»

Geoffrey Wood


«Men die in battle; women die in childbirth.»

Philippa Gregory


«I have witnessed the pleasant result of producing a human who faithfully claims to be a Christian, but who on some fundamental level does not think Christianity actually works. And just one Christian of this type turns off dozens from trying out Christianity for themselves.»

Geoffrey Wood


«If I say ‘there is no God’, I disrespect your belief; how when you say ‘there is a God’ you do not disrespect mine?»

M.F. Moonzajer


«I rather spend every Sunday of my life hanging off a cliff to rescue someone than spend one more time sitting in a pew next to hypocrites that talk about what they will do to better themselves and the world when they get around to it.»

Shannon L. Alder


«Grace runs downhill and now all his time is being redeemed.»

Geoffrey Wood


«this is her body this is her blood»

Saul Williams
