Quotes about Religion


Faith is a great thing, and really religious people would like us to believe that faith and knowing are the same thing, but I don`t believe that myself. Because there are too many different ideas on the subject.

Stephen King

We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.

Jonathan Swift

There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to my church as a human being.

James Joyce

Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.

Napoleon Bonaparte


Religion, like love and music, is natural. But so are smoking, war, and death.

Daniel Dennett


Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge which is power; religion gives man wisdom which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals. They are complementary.

Martin Luther King

How happy is the blameless Vestal`s lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray`r accepted, and each wish resign`d.

Alexander Pope


Everyone has gods. You just don't think they're gods.

Terry Pratchett


Faith is spiritualized imagination.

Henry Ward Beecher


Faith is all very well, until the real world comes along and snatches away everything that you hold dear. Then suddenly everything is thrown into sharp focus.

Cherie Currie


Think of how many religions attempt to validate themselves with prophecy. Think of how many people rely on these prophecies, however vague, however unfulfilled, to support or prop up their beliefs. Yet has there ever been a religion with the prophetic accuracy and reliability of science? There isn't a religion on the planet that doesn't long for a comparable ability - precise, and repeatedly demonstrated before committed skeptics - to foretell future events. No other human institution comes close.

Carl Sagan
