carry basically the same message,

The important thing is they should
be part of our daily lives.

the implication that some of the places that I have

- Pete Seeger

Religion united its influence with those of loyalty and love,
and the order of knighthood, endowed with all the sanctity
and religious awe that attended the priesthood,
became an object of ambition to the greatest sovereigns.

A religious man is a person who holds God and man in one thought at one time,
at all times, who suffers harm done to others,

whose greatest strength is love and defiance of despair.

A lot of the powerful religious leaders,
from Jesus to Buddha to Tibetan monks,
they're really talking about the same things:
love and acceptable,
and the value of friendship, and respecting yourself
so you can respect others.
- Jena Malone

I love the ACLU and I'm concerned now,
especially when it comes to our rights,
with current politics and the religious community and
the Conservative majority or minority -
I don't know who they are.
- Debbie Harry

We need less posturing and more genuine charisma.
Charisma was originally a religious term,
meaning "of the spirit" or "inspired."
It's about letting God's light shine through us.
It's about a sparkle in people that money can't buy.
It's an invisible energy with visible effects.
To let go, to just love, is not to fade into the wallpaper.
Quite the contrary, it's when we truly become bright.
We're letting our own light shine.
- Marianne Williamson

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted,

and all flesh shall see it together.

that is elementary, profound and alive.
- Albert Schweitzer

A friend or co-worker shares a political,
religious, economic, or social opinion
that is opposite to yours -
does that drive a wedge between your hearts?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Christian voters should start looking
at global warming and extreme poverty
as religious issues that speak to the culture of life.
- Al Franken

Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected
in a cosmic religion for the future:
It transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology;
it covers both the natural and the spiritual,
and it is based on a religious sense
aspiring from the experience of all things,
natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.
- Albert Einstein

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully
as when they do it from religious conviction.
- Blaise Pascal

You have to be an original individual;
you have to find your innermost core on your own,
with no guide, no guiding scriptures.
It is a dark night, but with the intense fire of inquiry
you are bound to come to the sunrise.
Everybody who has burned with intense inquiry
has found the sunrise.
Others only believe.
Those who believe are not religious,
they are simply avoiding the great adventure
of religion by believing.
- Osho

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Private religious speech can't be discriminated against.
It has to be treated equally with secular speech.
- Samuel Alito

To say that authority, whether secular or religious,
supplies no ground for morality
is not to deny the obvious fact that it supplies a sanction.
- Joseph Addison

Fear of death makes us devoid both of valor and religion.
For want of valor is want of religious faith.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

Jesus said: "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho,
when he fell into the hands of robbers.
They stripped him of his clothes, beat him
and went away, leaving him half dead.
A priest happened to be going down the same road,
and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.
So too, a Levite [religious leader],
when he came to the place and saw him,
passed by on the other side.
But a Samaritan [Samaritans and Jews generally disliked
and were suspicious of each other] came where the man was;
and when he saw him, he took pity on him.
He went to him and bandaged his wounds ... and ...
took him to an inn and took care of him. ...
Jesus [said] "Go and do likewise."
- Luke 10:25-37 (The Parable of the Good Samaritan)

It was seldom that I attended any religious meetings,
as my parents had not much faith in and were never
so unfortunate as to unite themselves with any of the religious sects.
- Orson Pratt

Doubt is part of all religion.
All the religious thinkers were doubters.
- Isaac Bashevis Singer

I claim that human mind or human society
is not divided into watertight compartments
called social, political and religious.
All act and react upon one another.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

People who want to share their religious views with you
almost never want you to share yours with them.
- Dave Barry

A vow is a purely religious act
which cannot be taken in a fit of passion.
It can be taken only with a mind purified
and composed and with God as witness.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

More and more people care about religious tolerance
as fewer and fewer care about religion.
- Alexander Chase

I have an almost religious zeal...
not for technology per se, but for the Internet which is for me,
the nervous system of mother Earth, which I see as a living creature,
linking up.
- Dan Millman

I never will, by any word or act, bow to the shrine of intolerance
or admit a right of inquiry into the religious opinions of others.
- Thomas Jefferson

I hope that no American will waste his franchise
and throw away his vote
by voting either for me or against me solely
on account of my religious affiliation. It is not relevant.
- John F. Kennedy

Marriage cannot be severed from its cultural,
religious and natural roots without weakening the good influence of society.
- Jack Kingston

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

You cannot divorce religious belief and public service.
I've never detected any conflict between
God's will and my political duty.
If you violate one, you violate the other.

I could read the Qu'ran easily at the age of five.
- Akhmad Kadyrov

The Egyptian tomb was the outcome of the Mesopotamian
influence and followed from the religious crisis the country had undergone.
- Stephen Gardiner

Religious poetry, civic poetry, lyric or dramatic poetry
are all categories of man's expression which are valid
only if the endorsement of formal content is valid.
- Salvatore Quasimodo

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.
- Christopher Dawson

Being a purely instrumental album, it makes a musical statement,
not a religious one, and I hope that people can feel
the emotion of the great melodies,
even without the words.
- Kenny G

My own personal, moral, spiritual, religious,
etc.
beliefs don't oppose same-gender marriage.
- Ed Case

Religious faith depends on a host of social,
psychological and emotional factors that have little
or nothing to do with probabilities,
evidence and logic.

Adherents of the new religious right reject the separation
of politics and religion,

- Christopher Lasch

- Joshua Lederberg

but not with federal dollars.
- Jose Serrano

I have treated many hundreds of patients.
Among those in the second half of life -
that is to say, over 35 -
there has not been one whose problem in the last resort
was not that of finding a religious outlook on life.
- Carl Jung

The artist himself may not think he is religious,
but if he is sincere his sincerity in itself is religion.
- Emily Carr

Americans should be free to recognize our religious heritage;
doing that is not the same as creating a government-sponsored religion.
- Ernest Istook
