Albert Einstein Quotes about religion
#1787 Jean Paul Sartre

Each human reality is at the same time a direct project to metamorphose its own For-itself into an In-itself-For-itself, a project of the appropriation of the world as a totality of being-in-itself, in the form of a fundamental quality. Every human reality is a passion in that it projects losing itself so as to found being and by the same stroke to constitute the In-itself which escapes contingency by being its own foundation, the Ens causa sui, which religions call God. Thus the passion of man is the reverse of that of Christ, for man loses himself as man in order that God may be born. But the idea of God is contradictory and we lose ourselves in vain. Man is a useless passion. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about religion
#2869 Napoleon I of France

Conscience is the most sacred thing among men. Every man has within him a still small voice, which tells him that nothing on earth can oblige him to believe that which he does not believe. The worst of all tyrannies is that which obliges eighteen-twentieths of a nation to embrace a religion contrary to their beliefs, under penalty of being denied their rights as citizens and of owning property, which, in effect, is the same thing as being without a country. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about religion
#2871 Napoleon I of France

Policemen and prisons ought never to be the means used to bring men back to the practice of religion. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about religion
#2874 Napoleon I of France

I do not see in religion the mystery of the incarnation so much as the mystery of the social order. It introduces into the thought of heaven an idea of equalization, which saves the rich from being massacred by the poor. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about religion
#3399 George Bernard Shaw

Undershaft: You have made for yourself something that you call a morality or a religion or what not. It doesn't fit the facts. Well, scrap it. Scrap it and get one that does fit. That is what is wrong with the world at present. It scraps its obsolete steam engines and dynamos; but it wont scrap its old prejudices and its old moralities and its old religions and its old political constitutions. Whats the result? In machinery it does very well; but in morals and religion and politics it is working at a loss that brings it nearer bankruptcy every year. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about religion
#3401 George Bernard Shaw

Undershaft: My religion? Well, my dear, I am a Millionaire. That is my religion. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about religion
#3408 George Bernard Shaw

Religion is a great force — the only real motive force in the world; but what you fellows don't understand is that you must get at a man through his own religion and not through yours. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about religion
#3415 George Bernard Shaw

is a great force — the only real motive force in the world; but what you fellows don't understand is that you must get at a man through his own religion and not through yours. Instead of facing that fact, you persist in trying to convert all men to your own little sect, so that you can use it against them afterwards. You are all missionaries and proselytizers trying to uproot the native religion from your neighbor's flowerbeds and plant your own in its place. You would rather let a child perish in ignorance than have it taught by a rival sectary. You can talk to me of the quintessential equality of coal merchants and British officers; and yet you can't see the quintessential equality of all the religions. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about religion
#3650 Woody Allen

To me there's no real difference between a fortune teller or a fortune cookie and any of the organized religions. They're all equally valid or invalid, really. And equally helpful. .

Woody Allen Quotes about religion
#3917 Francis Bacon

Above all, every relation must be considered as suspicious, which depends in any degree upon religion, as the prodigies of : And no less so, everything that is to be found in the writers of natural magic or alchemy, or such authors, who seem, all of them, to have an unconquerable appetite for falsehood and fable. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about religion
#3946 Francis Bacon

The greatest vicissitude of things amongst men is the vicissitude of sects and religions. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about religion
#4765 Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have heard with admiring submission the experience of the lady who declared "that the sense of being perfectly well-dressed gives a feeling of inward tranquility which religion is powerless to bestow". .

#4854 Ralph Waldo Emerson

I see that sensible men and conscientious men all over the world were of one religion. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about religion
#5018 Bill Gates

Just in terms of allocation of time resources, religion is not very efficient. There's a lot more I could be doing on a Sunday morning. .

Bill Gates Quotes about religion
#5118 Mark Twain

The easy confidence with which I know another man's religion is folly teaches me to suspect that my own is also. .

Mark Twain Quotes about religion
#5195 Mark Twain

I have no special regard for Satan; but, I can at least claim that I have no prejudice against him. It may even be that I lean a little his way, on account of his not having a fair show. All religions issue bibles against him, and say the most injurious things about him, but we never hear his side. We have none but the evidence for the prosecution, and yet we have rendered the verdict. To my mind, this is irregular. It is un-English, it is un-American; it is French. .

Mark Twain Quotes about religion
#5240 Mark Twain

In religion and politics, people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue, but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing. .

Mark Twain Quotes about religion
#5325 Karl Marx

Political Economy regards the proletarian ... like a horse, he must receive enough to enable him to work. It does not consider him, during the time when he is not working, as a human being. It leaves this to criminal law, doctors, religion, statistical tables, politics, and the beadle. … (1) What is the meaning, in the development of mankind, of this reduction of the greater part of mankind to abstract labor? (2) What mistakes are made by the piecemeal reformers, who either want to raise wages and thereby improve the situation of the working class, or — like— see equality of wages as the goal of social revolution?. .

Karl Marx Quotes about religion
#5352 Karl Marx

Law, morality, religion, are to him so many bourgeois prejudices, behind which lurk in ambush just as many bourgeois interests. .

Karl Marx Quotes about religion
#5995 Robert H. Jackson

The price of freedom of religion or of speech or of the press is that we must put up with, and even pay for, a good deal of rubbish. .

Robert H. Jackson Quotes about religion
#6018 Robert H. Jackson

The day that this country ceases to be free for irreligion it will cease to be free for religion - except for the sect that can win political power. .

Robert H. Jackson Quotes about religion
#6112 Pierre Trudeau

What is considered sinful in one of the great religions to which citizens belong isn't necessarily sinful in the others.therefore cannot be based on the notion of sin; it is crimes that it must define. .

Pierre Trudeau Quotes about religion
#6143 Clarence Darrow

Do you, good people, believe that Adam and Eve were created in the Garden of Eden and that they were forbidden to eat from the tree of knowledge? I do. The church has always been afraid of that tree. It still is afraid of knowledge. Some of you say religion makes people happy. So does laughing gas. So does whiskey. I believe in the brain of man. I'm not worried about my soul. .

Clarence Darrow Quotes about religion
#6177 Clarence Darrow

When every event was a miracle, when there was no order or system or law, there was no occasion for studying any subject, or being interested in anything excepting a religion which took care of the soul. As man doubted the primitive conceptions about religion, and no longer accepted the literal, miraculous teachings of ancient books, he set himself to understand nature. We no longer cure disease by casting out devils. .

Clarence Darrow Quotes about religion
#6446 Henry David Thoreau

In some lyceums they tell me that they have voted to exclude the subject of religion. But how do I know what their religion is, and when I am near to or far from it? I have walked into such an arena and done my best to make a clean breast of what religion I have experienced, and the audience never suspected what I was about. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about religion
#6477 James A. Michener

If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home. .

James A. Michener Quotes about religion
#6607 William Ellery Channing

I affirm, and would maintain, that true religion consists in proposing, as our great end, a growing likeness to the Supreme Being. Its noblest influence consists in making us more and more partakers of the Divinity. For this it is to be preached. Religious instruction should aim chiefly to turn men's aspirations and efforts to that perfection of the soul, which constitutes it a bright image of God. Such is the topic now to be discussed; and I implore Him, whose glory I seek, to aid me in unfolding and enforcing it with simplicity and clearness, with a calm and pure zeal, and with unfeigned charity. .

William Ellery Channing Quotes about religion
#6659 William Ellery Channing

It was religion, which, by teaching men their near relation to God, awakened in them the consciousness of their importance as individuals. It was the struggle for religious rights, which opened their eyes to all their rights. It was resistance to religious usurpation, which led men to withstand political oppression. It was religious discussion, which roused the minds of all classes to free and vigorous thought. .

William Ellery Channing Quotes about religion
#6780 Voltaire

The institution of religion exists only to keep mankind in order, and to make men merit the goodness of God by their virtue. Everything in a religion which does not tend towards this goal must be considered foreign or dangerous. .

Voltaire Quotes about religion
#7209 Adolf Hitler

This pride of race is a quality which the German, fundamentally, does not possess. The reason for this is that for these last three centuries the country has been torn by internal dissension and religious wars and has been subjected to a variety of foreign influences, to the influence, for example, of Christianity—for Christianity is not a natural religion for the Germans, but a religion that has been imported and which strikes no responsive chord in their hearts and is foreign to the inherent genius of the race. (13th February 1945) .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about religion
#7340 Leo Tolstoy

The appreciation of the merits of art (of the emotions it conveys) depends upon an understanding of the , what is seen as good and evil. Good and evil are defined by religions. .

Leo Tolstoy Quotes about religion
#7633 Harry Emerson Fosdick

Real Christians do not carry their religion, their religion carries them. It is not weight, it is wings. .

Harry Emerson Fosdick Quotes about religion
#7963 Stephen Crane

He had fought like a pagan who defends his religion. .

Stephen Crane Quotes about religion
#8088 George Carlin

Same with religion. Religion is nothing but mind control. Religion is just trying to control your mind, control your thoughts, so they're gonna tell you some things you shouldn't say because they're...sins. And besides telling you things you shouldn't say, religion is gonna suggest some things that you ought to be saying; "Here's something you ought to say first thing when you wake up in the morning; here's something you ought to say just before you go to sleep at night; here's something we always say on the third Wednesday in April after the first full moon in spring at 4 o'clock when the bells ring." Religion is always suggesting things you ought to be saying. .

George Carlin Quotes about religion
#8160 H. L. Mencken

It is the natural tendency of the ignorant to believe what is not true. In order to overcome that tendency it is not sufficient to exhibit the true; it is also necessary to expose and denounce the false. To admit that the false has any standing in court, that it ought to be handled gently because millions of morons cherish it and thousands of quacks make their livings propagating it—to admit this, as the more fatuous of the reconcilers of science and religion inevitably do, is to abandon a just cause to its enemies, cravenly and without excuse. It is, of course, quite true that there is a region in which science and religion do not conflict. That is the region of the unknowable. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about religion
#8249 H. L. Mencken

We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about religion
#8256 H. L. Mencken

There are people who read too much: the bibliobibuli. I know some who are constantly drunk on books, as other men are drunk on whiskey or religion. They wander through this most diverting and stimulating of worlds in a haze, seeing nothing and hearing nothing. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about religion
#8283 H. L. Mencken

Of all the religions ever devised by the great practical jokers of the race, [Christianity] is the one that offers most for the least money, so to speak, to the inferior man. It starts out by denying his inferiority in plain terms: all men are equal in the sight of God. It ends by erecting that inferiority into a sort of actual superiority: it is a merit to be stupid, and miserable, and sorely put upon—of such are the celestial elect. Not all the eloquence of a million Nietzsches, nor all the painful marshalling of evidence of a million Darwins and Harnacks, will ever empty that great consolation of its allure. The most they can ever accomplish is to make the superior orders of men acutely conscious of the exact nature of it, and so give them armament against the contagion. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about religion
#8376 Samuel Adams

In regard to religion, mutual toleration in the different professions thereof is what all good and candid minds in all ages have ever practised, and, both by precept and example, inculcated on mankind. .

Samuel Adams Quotes about religion
#8824 Fran§ois Ren© de Chateaubriand

Though we have not employed the arguments usually advanced by the apologists of , we have arrived by a different chain of reasoning at the same conclusion: Christianity is perfect; men are imperfect. Now, a perfect consequence cannot spring from an imperfect principle. Christianity, therefore, is not the work of men. If Christianity is not the work of man, it can have come from none but God. If it came from God, men cannot have acquired a knowledge of it except by revelation. Therefore, Christianity is a revealed religion. .

Fran§ois Ren© de Chateaubriand Quotes about religion
#9181 Edsger W. Dijkstra

Please don't fall into the trap of believing that I am terribly dogmatic about [the go to statement]. I have the uncomfortable feeling that others are making a religion out of it, as if the conceptual problems of programming could be solved by a simple trick, by a simple form of coding discipline! .

Edsger W. Dijkstra Quotes about religion
#9385 John Lennon

I suppose if I had said television was more popular than Jesus, I would have gotten away with it. I'm sorry I opened my mouth. I'm not anti-God, anti-Christ, or anti-religion. I wasn't knocking it or putting it down. I was just saying it as a fact and it's true more for England than here. I'm not saying that we're better or greater, or comparing us with Jesus Christ as a person or God as a thing or whatever it is. I just said what I said and it was wrong. Or it was taken wrong. And now it's all this. .
