Famous quotes containing the words worship and/or emperor:

    Rationalists are admirable beings, rationalism is a hideous monster when it claims for itself omnipotence. Attribution of omnipotence to reason is as bad a piece of idolatry as is worship of stock and stone believing it to be God. I plead not for the suppression of reason, but for a due recognition of that in us which sanctifies reason.
    Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869–1948)

    In those days a decree went out from Emperor Augustus that all the world should be registered.
