All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness ... the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.
Christianity, if false, is not important. If Christianity is true, however, it is of infinite importance. What it cannot be is moderately important.
The world is my country,all mankind are my brethren,and to do good is my religion.
I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me Superman.
Yes I am with you always, until the very end of time

Nature is my manifestation of God. I go to nature every day for inspiration in the day's work. I follow in building the principles which nature has used in its domain.
One of the greatest tragedies in mankind's entire history may be that morality was hijacked by religion.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because I see everything by it.
Man is to be found in reason, God in the passions.
I believe God is managing affairs and that He doesn't need any advice from me. With God in charge, I believe everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is there to worry about.
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
An almost forgotten truth, even among some practising Christians, is that it's never the physical world, but only the spirit of the world that is evil. Therefore the soul must detach itself from the spirit of the world.
The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves.
It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.
The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr.
Where there's hope, there's life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.
When people cease to believe in God, they don't believe in nothing; they believe in anything.
He is not strong and powerful who throweth people down; but he is strong who witholdeth himself from anger
Devotion is a social force.
