"Drink deep or taste not," is a direction fully as applicable to religion, if we would find it a source of pleasure, as it is to knowledge.
      - Dr. Samuel Wilberforce

The world has a thousand creeds, and never a one have I;
  Nor church of my own, though a million spires are pointing the way on high.
    But I float on the bosom of faith, that bears me along like a river;
      And the lamp of my soul is alight with love, for life, and the world, and the Giver.
      - Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Heresy

So many gods, so many creeds--
  So many paths that wind and wind
    While just the art of being kind
      Is all the sad world needs.
      - Ella Wheeler Wilcox, The World's Need

In a temple everything should be serious except the thing that is being worshiped.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Religion is the fashionable substitute for belief.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Who God doth late and early pray
  More of his Grace than Gifts to lend;
    And entertains the harmless day
      With a Religious Book or Friend.
      - Sir Henry Wotton,
        The Character of a Happy Life (st. 5)

Religion crowns the statesman and the man,
  Sole source of public and of private peace.
      - Edward Young

The dispute about religion, and the practice of it, seldom go together.
      - Edward Young

Religion's all. Descending from the skies
  To wretched man, the goddess in her left
    Holds out this world, and, in her right, the next.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night IV, l. 550)

But if man loses all, when life is lost,
  He lives a coward, or a fool expires.
    A daring infidel (and such there are,
      From pride, example, lucre, rage, revenge,
        Or pure heroical defect of thought),
          Of all earth's madmen, most deserves a chain.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VII, l. 199)

The search for religion is the starting point of thought.
      - Xu Zhimo

He who sows the ground with care and diligence acquires a greater stock of religious merit than he could gain by the repetition of ten thousand prayers.
      - Zoroaster

Things divine are not attainable by mortals who understand sensual things.
      - Zoroaster
