Benedict XVI # Church,

not seek a Christ whom we have invented, for only in the real
communion of the Church do we encounter the real Christ.
Benedict XVI # Christianity,
- I don't
like it, to be honest, when politicians make a big thing of
their religious beliefs, so I don't make a big thing of it.
Blair # Religion,
- Do not
believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not
believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored
by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found
written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything
merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not
believe in traditions because they have been handed down for
many generations. But after observation and analysis, when
you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive
to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and
live up to it.
Buddha # Belief,
- No one
saves us but ourselves, no one can and no one may. We ourselves
must walk the path but Buddhas clearly show the way.
Buddha # Self,
- The driving
force behind today's terrorist threat is Islamist fundamentalism.
The struggle we are engaged in is, at root, ideological. During

which, like other totalitarianisms, such as Nazi-ism and Communism,
offers its followers a form of redemption through violence.

and summoned men to fight against them and who, Gods
Hitler # Feelings,
pride of race is a quality which the German, fundamentally,
does not possess. The reason for this is that for these last
three centuries the country has been torn by internal dissension
and religious wars and has been subjected to a variety of
foreign influences, to the influence.
Hitler # Racist,

have a particular faith or religion, that is good. But you
can survive without it.
Lama # Faith,
- The very
purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize
others. Rather, we must criticize ourselves. How much am I
doing about my anger? About my attachment, about my hatred,
about my pride, my jealousy? These are the things which we
must check in daily life.

but rather a science of mind.
Lama # Religion,
- The time
has come to educate people, to cease all quarrels in the name
of religion, culture, countries, different political or economic
systems. Fighting is useless. Suicide.
Lama # Time,
does not mean just precepts, a temple, monastery, or other
external signs, for these as well as hearing and thinking
are subsidiary factors in taming the mind.
Lama # Religion,
to me, is a bureaucracy between man and God that I don't need.
Maher # Religion,
- The country
has become much more conservative, partly because it's been
taken over by the religious right.
Maher # Conservative,
- We are
a nation that is unenlightened because of religion. I do believe
that. I think religion stops people from thinking. I think
it justified crazies.
Maher # Nation,
- If you
have a few hundred followers and you let some of them molest
children, they call you a cult leader. If you have a billion,
they call you Pope.
Maher # Famous,
is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless
world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation.
It is the opium of the people.

Marx # Religion
that Jesus did what the Bible says. Believe He is indeed the
Son of God, born of a virgin. He took man's sin on the cross.
He did not stay dead. He was in the grave three days. During
that time, He entered hell, where you and I deserved to go
(legally) because of our sin.
Meyer # Belief,
is no hope of anyone going to heaven unless they believe this
truth. You cannot go to heaven unless you believe with all
your heart that Jesus took your place.
Meyer # Religion,
- All I
know is this works. It's not only worked for me, but I've
seen it work for literally thousands and thousands of people.
I have seen the transformation on people's faces when they
receive Christ. I've seen the glory come on them, the light.
Meyer # Christianity,
years of abuse, it was difficult for me to understand God's
love. It took me years to truly understand it. I had to study
it, recite it and tell myself God loved me even when I didn't
feel worthy of His love.

in this respect. The bloodiest wars in history have been religious
Nixon # Religion,
can purify religion from error and superstition. Religion
can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes.
John Paul II # Science,
- We Christians
joyfully recognize the religious values we have in common
with Islam. I would like to repeat what I said to young Muslims
some years ago in Casablanca: 'We believe in the same God,
the one God, the living God, the God who created the world
and brings his creatures to their perfection.'
John Paul II # Christianity,
- If you
are a Christian, you are in danger. Even if you are an atheist,
you are in danger, and if you decide to convert to Islam,
this will not save you, either, because traditional Islam
is inimical to the conditions and objectives set by the terrorists.
Putin # Religion,
is dangerous is not minarets, but basements and garages that
hide clandestine places of worship. Thus we must choose between
mosques, where we know that the rules of the republic are
respected, and secret places where extremism has been developing
for too long.
Sarkozy # Religion,
- The Pope?
How many divisions has he got?
Stalin # Religion,
which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.
Teresa # Christianity,
- I give
great thanks to God that he has created a Dalai Lama. Do you
really think, as some have argued, that God will be saying:
'You know, that guy, the Dalai Lama, is not bad. What a pity
he's not a Christian'? I don't think that is the case - because,
you see, God is not a Christian.
Tutu # God,
the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we
had the land. They said "Let us pray." We closed
our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had
Tutu # God,
all, good leaders are open. They go up, down, and around their
organization to reach people. They don't stick to the established
channels. They're informal. They're straight with people.
They make a religion out of being accessible. They never get
bored telling their story.
Welch # Leadership,
- It isn't
until you come to a spiritual understanding of who you are
not necessarily a religious feeling, but deep down, the spirit
within that you can begin to take control.
Winfrey # Spiritual,

in Islam. I am a Muslim and there is nothing wrong with being
