IDOLATRY
[ Also see Gods Idols Religion ]

Make no man your idol; for the best man must have faults, and his faults will usually become yours in addition to your own. This is as true in art as in morals.
      - Washington Allston

This idol gold can boast of two peculiarities: it is worshipped in all climates without a single temple, and by all classes without a single hypocrite.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

It is not he who forms idols in gold or marble that makes them gods, but he who kneels before them.
      - Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialis)

God will put up with a great many things in the human heart, but there is one thing that He will not put up with in it--a second place. He who offers God a second place, offers Him no place.
      - John Ruskin

'Tis mad idolatry,
  To make the service greater than the god.
      - William Shakespeare

Idolatry is certainly the first-born of folly, the great and leading paradox; nay, the very abridgment and sum total of all absurdities.
      - Bishop Robert South

Philosophers and common heathen believed one God, to whom all things were referred; but under this God they worshipped many inferior and subservient gods.
      - Benjamin Stillingfleet
