How often from the steep
  Of echoing hill or thicket have we heard
    Celestial voices to the midnight air,
      Sole, or responsive each to other's note,
        Singing their great Creator?
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. IV, l. 680)

Every one's true worship was that which he found in use in the place where he chanced to be.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne,
        Apology for Raimond Sebond,
        quoting Apollo

So shall they build me altars in their zeal,
  Where knaves shall minister, and fools shall kneel:
    Where faith may mutter o'er her mystic spell,
      Written in blood--and Bigotry may swell
        The sail he spreads for Heav'n with blasts from hell!
      - Edward Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--Veiled Prophet of Khorassan

Together kneeling, night and day,
  Thou, for my sake, at Allah's shrine,
    And I--at any God's for thine.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--Fire Worshippers
         (fourth division, l. 309)

Lord, let us to thy gates repair
  To hear the gladdening sound,
    That we may find salvation there,
      While yet it may be found.
        There let us joy and comfort reap;
          There teach us how to pray,
            For grace to choose, and strength to keep
              The strait, the narrow way.
                And so increase our love for Thee,
                  That all our future days
                    May one continued Sabbath be
                      Of gratitude and praise.
      - William Samways Oke

Yet, if he would, man cannot live all to this world. If not religious, he will be superstitious. IF he worship not the true God, he will have his idols.
      - Theodore Parker,
        Critical and Miscellaneous Writings
         (Essay I, A Lesson for the Day)

First worship God; he that forgets to pray
  Bids not himself good morrow, nor good day.
      - Thomas Randolph

Stoop, boys. This gate
  Instructs you how t' adore the heavens and bows you
    To a morning's holy office.
      - William Shakespeare, Cymbeline
         (Belarius at III, iii)

Intend some fear;
  Be not you spoke with but by mighty suit;
    And look you get a prayer book in your hand
      And stand between two churchmen, good my lord,
        For on that ground I'll make a holy descant;
          And be not easily won to our requests.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Henry the Third
         (Buckingham at III, iii)
