Famous quotes containing the words religion and/or roman:

    A heroic figure ... not wholly to blame for the religion that’s been foisted on him.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)
