carry basically the same message,

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

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

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.
- Thomas Bulfinch

the implication that some of the places that I have
sung and some of the people that I have known,
and some of my opinions, whether they are religious or philosophical,
make me less of an American.
- Pete Seeger

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.

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 passion is compassion,
whose greatest strength is love and defiance of despair.

as when they do it from religious conviction.
- Blaise Pascal

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

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

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

I am a deeply religious nonbeliever -
this is a somewhat new kind of religion.
- Albert Einstein

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

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

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

liberty from a room of silent,
thoughtful schoolchildren.
- Sandra Day O'Connor

I'm not religious at all,
but I believe in God very strongly.
- Bono

The inherent nature of God
is not changed by our individual beliefs,
our religious institutions,
or our communal traditions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult.
- Rita Rudner

A just laicism allows religious freedom.
The state does not impose religion but rather gives
space to religions with a responsibility toward civil society,
and therefore it allows these religions to be factors in building up society.
- Joseph Ratzinger

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

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

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

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

In the long term we can hope that religion will change
the nature of man and reduce conflict.
But history is not encouraging in this respect.
The bloodiest wars in history have been religious wars.
- Richard M. Nixon

Recall a recent time when someone was strongly critical
of your opinions (perhaps your political or religious beliefs).
Now, put yourself in their shoes - with compassion.
Try to understand and appreciate their point-of-view -
not to change your own opinions,
but to celebrate all our human differences - in peace.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Both Christians and religious Jews are finding it increasingly
difficult to practice their faiths through college
groups on so-called mainline campuses in the United States.

They teach that we should do unto others as we would have them do unto us.

the mere threat of charges of cultural or religious
insensitivity to stop us from dealing with this evil.

If you violate one, you violate the other.

the law of the Republic overrides religious rules.
- Jean-Pierre Raffarin

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

A religious life is a struggle and not a hymn.
- Madame de Stael

I am basically a religious man.
- Cyril Cusack

Offspring, the due performance on religious rites,
faithful service, highest conjugal happiness and heavenly
bliss for the ancestors and oneself,
depend on one's wife alone.
- Guru Nanak

Yes, I'm religious.
God has shown me things, made certain ways clear to me.
- Richard Pryor

The introduction of religious passion into politics
is the end of honest politics,
and the introduction of politics into religion is the
prostitution of true religion.
- Lord Hailsham

every expanded prospect.

like the religious altar, it is maintained for the
purpose of human sacrifice.

We should run to them.
- James Carville

instruction which is in antagonism to the wishes of their parents,
is what no man with say sense of justice would suggest.

Not only every religious symbol, but every human thought
has its page in that vast book.

bondage more than all other adverse influences.

respect for those people who do and different people
have different religious views in this country.
