If we make religion our business, God will make it our blessedness.
      - H.G.J. Adam

Religion contracts the circle of our pleasures, but leaves it wide enough for her votaries to expatiate in.
      - Joseph Addison

True religion and virtue give a cheerful and happy turn to the mind, admit of all true pleasures, and even procure for us the highest.
      - Joseph Addison

Religion is not a method, it is a life, a higher and supernatural life, mystical in its root and practical in its fruits; a communion with God, a calm and deep enthusiasm, a love which radiates, a force which acts, a happiness which overflows.
      - Henri-Frederic Amiel

Religion--that voice of the deepest human experience.
      - Matthew Arnold

Children of men! the unseen Power, whose eye
  Forever doth accompany mankind,
    Hath look'd on no religion scornfully
      That men did ever find.
      - Matthew Arnold, Progress (st. 10)

Lukewarm persons think they may accommodate points of religion by middle ways and witty reconcilements,--as if they would make an arbitrament between God and man.
      - Francis Bacon

There was never law, or set, or opinion did so much magnify goodness, as the Christian religion doth.
      - Francis Bacon,
        Essays--Of Goodness, and Goodness of Nature

The greatest vicissitude of things amongst men, is the vicissitude of sects and religions.
      - Francis Bacon, Of Vicissitude of Things

A true religious instinct never deprived man of one single joy; mournful faces and a sombre aspect are the conventional affectations of the weak-minded.
      - Hosea Ballou

Man, being not only a religious, but also a social being, requires for the promotion of his rational happiness religious institutions, which, while they give a proper direction to devotion, at the same time make a wise and profitable improvement of his social feelings.
      - Hosea Ballou

Too many people embrace religion from the same motives that they take a companion in wedlock, not from true love of the person, but because of a large dowry.
      - Hosea Ballou

Most geometricians, chemists, mathematicians and great scientists submit religion to reason only to discover a problem as unsolvable as that of squaring the circle.
      - Honore de Balzac

He who thinks to save anything by his religion, besides his soul, will be a loser in the end.
      - Joel Barlow

Religion is indeed woman's panoply; no one who wishes her happiness would divest her of it; no one who appreciates her virtues would weaken her best security.
      - Cyrus Augustus Bartol

A man has no more religion than he acts out in his life.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

A man's religion is himself. If he is right-minded toward God, he is religious; if the Lord Jesus Christ is his schoolmaster, then he is Christianly religious.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

All the sobriety which' religion needs or requires is that which real earnestness produces.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

All true religion must stand on true morality.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

By religion I mean perfected manhood,--the quickening of the soul by the influence of the Divine Spirit.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Of all joyful, smiling, ever-laughing experiences, there are none like those which spring from true religion.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Religion is the fruit of the Spirit, a Christian character, a true life.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Religion is using everything for God.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Religion, in one sense, is a life of self-denial, just as husbandry, in one sense, is a work of death.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The call to religion is not a call to be better than your fellows, but to be better than yourself. Religion is relative to the individual.
      - Henry Ward Beecher
