A religious person is devout in the sense that he has no doubt about the significance of those superpersonal objects and goals which neither require nor are capable of rational foundation.
      - Albert Einstein

All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.
      - Albert Einstein

I am of the opinion that all the finer speculations in the realm of science spring from a deep religious feeling, and that without such feeling they would not be fruitful.
      - Albert Einstein,
        quoted in God in the Equation by Corey S. Powell

It was the experience of mystery--even if mixed with fear--that engendered religion.
      - Albert Einstein

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.
      - Albert Einstein

There remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion.
      - Albert Einstein

If I have read religious history aright, faith, hope, and charity have not always been found in a direct ratio with a sensibility to the three concords; and it is possible, thank heaven! to have very erroneous theories and very sublime feelings.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

It is the property of the religious spirit to be the most refining of all influences. No external advantages, no culture of the tastes, no habit of command, no association with the elegant, or even depth of affection, can bestow that delicacy and that grandeur of bearing which belong only to the mind accustomed to celestial conversation,--all else is but gilt and cosmetics, beside this, as expressed in every look and gesture.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Natural religion supplies still all the facts which are disguised under the dogma of popular creeds. The progress of religion is steadily to its identity with morals.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Religion must always be a crab fruit; it cannot be grafted, and keep its wild beauty.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The religion of one age is the literary entertainment of the next.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The religions of the world are the ejaculations of a few imaginative men.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The religions we call false were once true.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I do not find that the age or country makes the least difference; no, nor the language the actors spoke, nor the religion which they professed, whether Arab in the desert or Frenchman in the Academy, I see that sensible men and conscientious men all over the world were of one religion.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson,
        Lectures and Biographical Sketches--The Preacher
         (p. 215)

I like the church, I like a cowl,
  I love a prophet of the soul;
    And on my heart monastic aisles
      Fall like sweet strains or pensive smiles;
        Yet not for all his faith can see,
          Would I that cowled churchman be.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Problem

Unless we place our religion and our treasure in the same thing, religion will always be sacrificed.
      - Epictetus

It is rare to see a rich man religious; for religion preaches restraint, and riches prompt to unlicensed freedom.
      - Owen Felltham (Feltham)

We may as well tolerate all religions, since God Himself tolerates all.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

When kings interfere in matters of religion, they enslave instead of protecting it.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

Theology is Anthropology.
  [Ger., Die Theologie ist die Anthropologie.]
      - Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach,
        Wesen des Christenthums

People of gayety and fashion have occasionally a feeling that a little easy quantity of religion would be a good thing; because, after all, we cannot stay in this world always, and there may be hardish matters to settle in the other place.
      - John Foster (1)

Religion has done love a great service by making it a sin.
      - Jacques Anatole I. France (Jacques Anatole Thibault)

Preach the gospel all the time. If necessary use words.
      - Saint Francis of Assisi

If men are so wicked with religion, what would they be without it?
      - Benjamin Franklin

Many have quarreled about religion that never practiced it.
      - Benjamin Franklin
