Famous quotes containing the word religion:

    There is not a greater paradox in nature,—than that so good a religion [as Christianity] should be no better recommended by its professors.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    The religion of the Bible is the best in the world. I see the infinite value of religion. Let it be always encouraged. A world of superstition and folly have grown up around its forms and ceremonies. But the truth in it is one of the deep sentiments in human nature.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    My country is the world, and my religion is to do good.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)
