      - John Calvin

No graven images may be worshipped, except the currency.
      - Arthur Hugh Clough, The Latest Decalogue
         (l. 3)

We boast our emancipation from many superstitions; but if we have broken any idols, it is through a transfer of idolatry.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sacred cows make very poor gladiators.
      - Nikki Giovanni

The idol is the measure of the worshiper.
      - James Russell Lowell

      - John Selden

The savage bows down to idols of wood and stone, the civilized man to idols of flesh and blood.
      - George Bernard Shaw
