My religion consists of a humble admiration of the unlimitable superior who reveals Himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.
- Albert Einstein
Being perfectly well-dressed gives a feeling of tranquility that religion is powerless to bestow.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson, quoting a friend
I believe I am not mistaken in saying that Christianity is a demanding and serious religion. When it is delivered as easy and amusing, it is another kind of religion altogether.
- Neil Postman
There is no religion higher than the truth.
- H Hahn Blavatsky

- Carl Sagan
I conceive the essential task of religion to be to develop the consciences, the ideals, and the aspirations of mankind.
- Robert Millikan
