If you have a particular faith or religion, that is good. But you can survive without it.
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
The modern dilemma is essentially a spiritual one, and every one of its main aspects, moral, political and scientific, brings us back to the need of a religious solution.
Religion is the recognition of all our duties as divine commands.

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Everyone who has ever built anywhere a 'new heaven' first found the power thereto in his own hell.

The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves.

Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.
