Amit Ray
“Be brave. Be free from philosophies, prophets and holy lies. Go deep into your feelings and explore the mystery of your body, mind and soul. You will find the truth.”
Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations

“Hang on! God will be thy strength in any act of your pursuit.”

Israel Morrow
“I firmly believe that American society would not endure ten years if subjected to half the trials and tortures we’ve put Natives through. And yet Native peoples have not been utterly destroyed, not by the world’s strongest military. They have not been totally assimilated, not by the world’s largest religion. Native religions are indeed concerned with being a good person, respecting one’s family, ancestors, community, and the Earth—and when these principles are lived, there is great strength.”
Israel Morrow, Gods of the Flesh: A Skeptic's Journey Through Sex, Politics and Religion

a soul is planted
bearing the fruits
of his masterpiece”
Ali Nuri, Rain and Embers

“God is a woman
intimate at night
and a hung devil
in the morning”
Ali Nuri, Rain and Embers

Karl Wiggins
“So what actually goes on with all this religion business? Does it really matter whether you’re a Gnostic, a Christian, a Muslim, a Shi’ite, a Hindu, a Taoist, a Rosicrucian, a Jew, a Witch or a Jehovah’s Witness? Not in the slightest. (Well, it might matter if you’re a Jehovah’s Witness). Does it matter if you follow the teachings of Confucius, Buddha, Ramakrishna or Mary Baker Eddy? Of course not. Does it matter if your ritual object or talisman is a cup, an amulet, a tabernacle, a horseshoe, holy water, a wishbone, a Sanctus bell, a St. Christopher, a baptismal font, a rabbit’s foot, rosary beads, a broomstick or a seven-branched candlestick? No, it’s just something to focus your mind on. The real power is within you.

Just as long as it doesn’t become a cop-out. Which it so often does. Why? I’ll tell you. Because Rag, Tag & Bobtail are not willing to take responsibility for their own lives. They need someone to tell them what to do and what to believe. But in reality you don’t need anyone. It’s all there inside you. You grant your own absolution. Hey, it’s your life! You certainly have more control over your ultimate destiny than a priest.”
Karl Wiggins, Wrong Planet - Searching for your Tribe

“Man is so busy creating cosmetics for the skin, that he has not Discovered, what lies Within!”
AiR Atman in Ravi, The 4th Factor

“That said, I do have my own set of beliefs. One of them is 'each to their own' and I’ve got absolutely no problem with other people believing whatever the hell they want to believe. Worship away my friends – that’s absolutely fine by me. My only problem comes when people try to force their set of beliefs on others. That’s not cool. In short, don’t try to convince me to worship your God and I won’t call bull shit on your charade.”
Beans on Toast, Drunk Folk Stories

Stewart Stafford
“Theology is a study of the series of disagreements that are the world's religions. Atheism fundamentally disagrees with these disagreements that preceded it.”
Stewart Stafford

“Not again,” Daphne muttered angrily when she came in for dinner one night. “How can Muggles listen to such dribble?”

“It’s ‘Joy to the World,’” Justin responded importantly. “How can that possibly be dribble?”

She scoffed at him. “Evidence shows that your Harry Potter figure—“

Harry gagged at her phrasing and nearly choked on the pumpkin juice he was drinking.

“As I was saying,” Daphne began again, “your Harry Potter figure was most likely born in March. Your scholars say so.”

Justin rolled his eyes.

“The only reason that your Christmas was placed at the end of December was because of pre-existing pagan holidays celebrating the darkest time of the year, when the pagan god is reborn having died at Samhain. Your god’s death and resurrection had been told hundreds of times before that in all notable pagan religions. And you stole our date and our customs—including evergreen trees and mistletoe.”

“I don’t think I like Jesus being called a Harry Potter figure,” Harry murmured to himself, finding the entire conversation suddenly frightening.

“I can’t believe you just said that,” Justin said to Daphne, who pointedly ignored him.

“Why not?” she questioned Harry. “He somehow survived death to rise again when he shouldn’t have and was born to save the world. He clearly is a prefiguration of the entire prophecy situation we currently have. Who knows? In two thousand years there might be a religion surrounding you.”

Harry paled just at that horrifying thought, and was glad that Octavian celebrated Yule. After this Christmas, he would try never to think about those parallels ever again.

“What about angels visiting the shepherds?” Justin asked Daphne defensively. “Or the three kings? I bet you don’t have those!”

“You really think you came up with the kings?” Daphne laughed. “Don’t get me started on the three magical kings. They’re not even human!”
ExcentrykeMuse, Of Horcruxes and Kings

“A religion that adopts one to one relationship has its religious God that adopts one to many relationships; it is both mystical and hypothetical”
Sir P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar

“All things act in the name of Almighty God, for minute things like seeds and grains bear huge trees on their heads; they raise loads like mountains. That means all trees say: “In the Name of God,” fill their hands from the treasury of mercy, and offer them to us.”
Master Nursi

Kenneth Masong
“Religion makes sense only to those on a quest for redemption.”
Kenneth Masong, Becoming-Religion: Alfred North Whitehead and a Contemporary Philosophical Reflection

Talees Rizvi
“Not against any Religion I know it’s tough to deny generations old fairy tale beliefs but at least measure with basic logic (For All Religions)”
Talees Rizvi, 21 Day Target and Achievement Planner [Use Only Printed Work Book: LIFE IS SIMPLE HENCE SIMPLE WORKBOOK

“Manusia sekarang lebih percaya kata manusia daripada firman Tuhannya.”

R.F. Kuang
“The national quest to modernize and mobilize entails a faith in one's ability to control world order, and when that happens, you lose your connection with the gods. When man begins to think that he is responsible for writing the script of the world, he forgets the forces that dream up our reality.”
R.F. Kuang

Rodolfo Martin Vitangcol
“Freely pick good men from any region,
then say if they all have a religion.
Freely pick bad men from any region,
then say if they all have no religion.

Does religion define man’s personhood:
“That if without, he’s bad; if with, he’s good”?
God is not a religion, He is Life:
“Man is good if to the world he brings life.”
Rodolfo Martin Vitangcol

C.S. Lewis
“U obrazovanim krugovima fina mržnja izražava se obično tako da se kaže nešto što napisano djeluje posve bezazleno (same riječi nisu uvredljive), ali po izvjesnom tonu i u određenom trenutku djeluje kao šaka u lice.”
C.S. Lewis

Alfred Stefan Guart
“There was no point where this Entity started or ended. I could not say it was standing over there or it came from that direction. It was everywhere at once. The communication taking place was instant, complete and silent. No words, no symbols or sounds. Yet any misunderstanding was impossible. This was a communion, not a conversation.”
Alfred Stefan Guart, Beyond the Sphere: Encounters with the Divine

Zakir Malik
“The light of religions
Would have entered the minds, but people”
Zakir Malik, The Wail Of The Woods

“My jersey is not in support or not in defiance of any particular religious heresy”
P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar

Russell Brand
“don't get my authority from this preexisting paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people. I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity.
Russell Brand”
Russell Brand

Joey Lawsin
“The Biggest Mistake Man has ever made is when he copied the ideas from his ancient past.”
Joey Lawsin, In the beginning, Man Created God

Robert  Black
“A lot of religions involve the external, whereas meditation deals with the internal. It is like taking a dirty car through a car wash. The car will come out clean and shiny on the outside, but the inside will remain dirty, in some cases filthy. With meditation, the car is cleaned from the inside first, and then the outside will be cleaned, often by nature, using the car in the rain.”
Robert Black

Ben Shapiro
“As a religious person, I do agree with much of Ayn Rand's profoundly negative view of religion. Still, to minimize her contribution to philosophy is ridiculous. Her espousal of capitalism is incredibly important, today more than ever before. With taxes rising and government intervening in all sectors of life, her libertarian philosophy is required at least to balance the debate.”
Ben Shapiro, Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America's Youth

Ben Shapiro
“Professors hope to build an intellectual tower that reaches into the heavens, to challenge God. They drag organized religion through the mud and then shoot arrows at its diritied carcass.”
Ben Shapiro, Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America's Youth

“Ora como si todo dependiera de Dios, trabaja como si todo dependiera de ti”.”
