Famous quotes containing the word religion:
“We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.”
—Jonathan Swift (16671745)
“It is manifest therefore that they who have sovereign power, are immediate rulers of the church under Christ, and all others but subordinate to them. If that were not, but kings should command one thing upon pain of death, and priests another upon pain of damnation, it would be impossible that peace and religion should stand together.”
—Thomas Hobbes (15791688)
“In the latter part of the seventeenth century, according to the historian of Dunstable, Towns were directed to erect a cage near the meeting-house, and in this all offenders against the sanctity of the Sabbath were confined. Society has relaxed a little from its strictness, one would say, but I presume that there is not less religion than formerly. If the ligature is found to be loosened in one part, it is only drawn the tighter in another.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
