Famous quotes containing the word religion:

    The religion which is to guide and fulfill the present and coming ages, whatever else it be, must be intellectual. The scientific mind must have a faith which is science.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    ... religion can only change when the emotions which fill it are changed; and the religion of personal fear remains nearly at the level of the savage.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    The foregoing generations beheld God and nature face to face; we, through their eyes. Why should not we also enjoy an original relation to the universe? Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
