Famous quotes containing the word religion:

    That, upon the whole, we may conclude that the Christian religion not only was at first attended with miracles, but even at this day cannot be believed by any reasonable person without one. Mere reason is insufficient to convince us of its veracity: And whoever is moved by Faith to assent to it, is conscious of a continued miracle in his own person, which subverts all the principles of his understanding, and gives him a determination to believe what is most contrary to custom and experience.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    Intolerance respecting other people’s religion is toleration itself in comparison with intolerance respecting other people’s art.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
