When people cease to believe in God, they don't believe in nothing; they believe in anything.
I believe in the fundamental truth of all great religions of the world.

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

The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.
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.
Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.
