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)

    Talk to me about the truth of religion and I’ll listen gladly. Talk to me about the duty of religion and I’ll listen submissively. But don’t come talking to me about the consolations of religion or I shall suspect that you don’t understand.
    —C.S. (Clive Staples)

    Not thou nor thy religion dost controule,
    The amorousnesse of an harmonious Soule,
    But thou would’st have that love thy selfe: As thou
    Art jealous, Lord, so I am jealous now,
    Thou lov’st not, till from loving more, thou free
    My soule: Who ever gives, takes libertie:
    O, if thou car’st not whom I love
    Alas, thou lov’st not mee.
    John Donne (1572–1631)
