I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
You don't look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.
Man is to be found in reason, God in the passions.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.
We can only know God well when we know our own sin. And those who have known God without knowing their wretchedness have not glorified Him but have glorified themselves.
God has no religion.
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.
Give us this day our daily faith, but deliver us, dear God, from belief.
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
God is cruel. Sometimes he makes you live.
If you're really spiritual, then you should be totally independent of the good and the bad opinions of the world... you should have faith in yourself.
The great obstacle to the conversion of the modern world is the belief that religion has no intellectual significance; that it may be good for morals and satisfying to man's emotional needs, but that it corresponds to no objective reality.
I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.
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.
There is a justifiable reaction against a type of religion which imposed rigid restrictions on any kind of rational enjoyment, while it left men free to exploit one another and to make life hideous in the race for wealth.
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be the sons of God.
If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my god.
The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.
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.
One of the greatest tragedies in mankind's entire history may be that morality was hijacked by religion.
It doesn’t matter what you say you believe - it only matters what you do.
