For centuries, theologians have been explaining the unknowable in terms of the-not-worth-knowing.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

The time appears to me to have come when it is the duty of all to make their dissent from religion known.
      - John Stuart Mill

True religion is always mild, propitious, and humble; plays not the tyrant, plants no faith in blood, nor bears destruction on her chariot-wheels; but stoops to polish, succor, and redress, and builds her grandeur on the public good.
      - James Miller

Religion is no more national than conscience.
      - Marquis de Mirabeau, Victor de Riquetti

A prince who loves and fears religion is a lion who stoops to the hand that strokes or to the voice that appeases him. He who fears and hates religion is like the savage beast that growls and bites the chain, which prevents his flying on the passenger. He who has no religion at all is that terrible animal who perceives his liberty only when he tears in pieces, and when he devours.
      - Charles de Montesquieu (Charles-Louis de Secondat)

Wonderful! that the Christian religion, which seems to have no other object than the felicity of another life, should also constitute the happiness of this.
      - Charles de Montesquieu (Charles-Louis de Secondat)

The solitary monk who shook the world
  From pagan slumber, when the gospel trump
    Thunder' d its challenge from his dauntless lips
      In peals of truth.
      - Robert Montgomery

Where it is a duty to worship the sun it is pretty sure to be a crime to examine the laws of heat.
      - John Morley, 1st Viscount of Blackburn

Religion is, in fact, the dominion of the soul; it is the hope, the anchor of safety, the deliverance from evil. What a service has Christianity rendered to humanity!
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

What a solace Christianity must be to one who has an undoubted conviction of its truth!
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

"When I was young, I was sure of many things; there are only two things of which I am sure now; one is, that I am a miserable sinner; and the other, that Jesus Christ is an all sufficient Saviour." He is well taught who gets these two lessons.
      - John Newton (1)

A man devoid of religion, is like a horse without a bridle.
      - Old Latin Saying

Any system of religion that has anything in it that shocks the mind of a child, cannot be true.
      - Thomas Paine

Every religion is good that teaches man to be good.
      - Thomas Paine

The adulterous connection between church and state.
      - Thomas Paine

The world is my country,
  All mankind is my brethren,
    To do good is my religion,
      I believe in one God and no more.
      - Thomas Paine

Religion without joy,--it is no religion.
      - Theodore Parker

We are religious by nature.
      - Charles Henry Parkhurst

Human things must be known to be loved; but Divine things must be loved to be known.
      - Blaise Pascal

If we subject everything to reason, our religion will have nothing mysterious or supernatural. If we violate the principles of reason, our religion will be absurd and ridiculous.
      - Blaise Pascal

Be sure that religion cannot be right that a man is the worse for having.
      - William Penn

Religion is the fear of God, and its demonstration good works; and faith is the root of both: "For without faith we cannot please God;" nor can we fear what we do not believe.
      - William Penn

To be furious in religion is to be irreligiously religious.
      - William Penn

To have religion upon authority, and not upon conviction, is like a finger-watch, to be set forwards or backwards, as he pleases that has it in keeping.
      - William Penn

No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.
      - William Penn, No Cross, No Crown
