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
Say nothing of my religion. It is known to God and myself alone. Its evidence before the world is to be sought in my life if it has been honest and dutiful to society the religion which has regulated it cannot be a bad one.
- Thomas Jefferson
All outward forms of religion are almost useless, and are the causes of endless strife . Believe there is a great power silently working all things for good, behave yourself, and never mind the rest.
- Beatrix Potter
The artist needs no religion beyond his work.
- Elbert Hubbard
If your religion does not make you holy, it will damn you. It is simply painted pageantry to go to hell in.
- Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Give a man religion without reminding him of his filth, and the result will be arrogance in a three- piece suit. Max Lucado
- Max Lucado, The Applause of Heaven
Matters of religion should never be matters of controversy. We neither argue with a lover about his taste, not condemn him, if we are just, for knowing so human a passion.
- George Santayana
Then he saw also that it matters little what profession, whether of religion or irreligion, a man may make, provided only he follows it out with charitable inconsistency, and without insisting on it to the bitter end. It is in the uncompromisingness with which dogma is held and not in the dogma or want of dogma that the danger lies.
- Samuel Butler, The Way of All Flesh
