Religious

Famous quotes containing the word religious:

    God from the mount of Sinai, whose grey top
    Shall tremble, he descending, will himself
    In thunder lightning and loud trumpets’ sound
    Ordain them laws; part such as appertain
    To civil justice, part religious rites
    Of sacrifice, informing them, by types
    And shadows, of that destined seed to bruise
    The serpent, by what means he shall achieve
    Mankind’s deliverance.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    It’s almost impossible to deal with a crazy man, except that he does have religious beliefs, and the world of Islam will be damaged if a fanatic like him should commit murder in the name of religion against 60 innocent people.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    It is not woman who claims the highest in man. It is a man’s own religious soul that drives him on beyond women, to his supreme activity. For his highest, man is responsible to God alone.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
