Religion Quotes

Seven of the best book quotes about religion
  1. #1
    “I can well imagine an atheist’s last words: ‘White, white! L-L-Love! My God!‘—and the deathbed leap of faith. Whereas the agnostic, if he stays true to his reasonable self, if he stays beholden to dry, yeastless factuality, might try to explain the warm light bathing him by saying, ‘Possibly a f-f-failing oxygenation of the b-b-brain,’ and, to the very end, lack imagination and miss the better story.
  2. #2
    “God hath given you one face, and you make yourself another.”
  3. #3
    “They attend with Pharisaical strictness to the outward forms of religion, and at the same time neglect the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith.”
  4. #4
    “We have men sold to build churches, women sold to support the gospel, and babes sold to purchase Bibles for the poor heathen, all for the glory of God and the good of souls. The slave auctioneer’s bell and the church-going bell chime in with each other, and the bitter cries of the heart-broken slave are drowned in the religious shouts of his pious master. Revivals of religion and revivals in the slave trade go hand in hand.”
  5. #5
    “Love is holy.”
  6. #6
    “No sight so sad as that of a naughty child,” he began, “especially a naughty little girl. Do you know where the wicked go after death?”
    “They go to hell,” was my ready and orthodox answer.
    “And what is hell? Can you tell me that?”
    “A pit full of fire.”
    “And should you like to fall into that pit, and to be burning there for ever?”
    “No, sir.”
    “What must you do to avoid it?”
    I deliberated a moment: my answer, when it did come was objectionable: “I must keep in good health and not die.”
  7. #7
    “I know zoos are no longer in people’s good graces. Religion faces the same problem. Certain illusions about freedom plague them both.”
