Famous quotes containing the word church:

    It’s better to sit in the bar and think of church than to sit in church and to think of the bar.
    Swedish proverb, trans. by Verne Moberg.

    If I should go out of church whenever I hear a false statement I could never stay there five minutes. But why come out? The street is as false as the church, and when I get to my house, or to my manners, or to my speech, I have not got away from the lie.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The church is a sort of hospital for men’s souls, and as full of quackery as the hospital for their bodies. Those who are taken into it live like pensioners in their Retreat or Sailor’s Snug Harbor, where you may see a row of religious cripples sitting outside in sunny weather.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
