Favorite Religion The Kite Runner Quotes

1. "True religion is removed from diet and days, from garments and ceremonies, and placed where it belongs-in the union of the spirit of man with the Spirit of God."
Author: A.W. Tozer
2. "Admittedly, I do have several bones, whole war fields full of bones, in fact to pick with organised religion of whatever stripe. This should be seen as a critique of purely temporal agencies who have, to my mind, erected more obstacles between whatever notion of spirituality and Godhead one subscribes to than they have opened doors. To me, the difference between Godhead and the Church is the difference between Elvis and Colonel Parker... although that conjures images of God dying on the toilet, which is not what I meant at all."
Author: Alan Moore
3. "One strength of the communist system of the East is that it has some of the character of a religion and inspires the emotions of a religion."
Author: Albert Einstein

Author: Andrew Greeley
5. "Délations: La religion chrétienne est, comme on sait, l'appui de la société et le soutien des mœurs. Voilà pourquoi surtout dans les pays où la sainte inquisition est établie, l'église a des espions et force à la délation les parents, les amis, les valets ; ce qui rend la société très sûre, les mœurs très honnêtes, et le commerce de la vie infiniment agréable."
Author: Baron D'Holbach
6. "Too long has the public mind considered religion to be synonymous with priestcraft."
Author: Benjamin Whorf
7. "[When asked 'Given the chance, how would you change the world?']It's a big question. Getting rid of religion would be a good start, wouldn't it? It seems to be causing a lot of havoc."
Author: Björk
8. "To him food was identity, culture, family, how you define home and love and who you are - all of it at once....It's not just the pie. It's the chemistry and physics. It's place and time and history and religion and music...I felt blurred by his presence, overwhelmed with double vision - the world as I was seeing it and the world as Henry would have."
Author: Bridget Asher
9. "We hear a great deal about the rudeness of the ris- ing generation. I am an oldster myself and might be expected to take the oldsters' side, but in fact I have been far more impressed by the bad manners of par- ents to children than by those of children to parents. Who has not been the embarrassed guest at family meals where the father or mother treated their grown-up offspring with an incivility which, offered to any other young people, would simply have termi- nated the acquaintance? Dogmatic assertions on mat- ters which the children understand and their elders don't, ruthless interruptions, flat contradictions, ridicule of things the young take seriously some- times of their religion insulting references to their friends, all provide an easy answer to the question "Why are they always out? Why do they like every house better than their home?" Who does not prefer civility to barbarism?"
Author: C.S. Lewis
10. "Without cultural indoctrination, all of us would be atheists. Or, more specifically, while many may dream up their own gods as did our ancestors, they would certainly not be ‘Christian' or ‘Jewish' or ‘Muslim' or any other established religion. That's because, without the texts and churches and familial instruction, there are no independent evidences that any specific religion is true. Outside of the Bible, how would one hear of Jesus? The same goes for every established religion."
Author: David G. McAfee
11. "We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love."
Author: David Mitchell
12. "And we neglect the glorious gospel when we fail to recognize his preeminence. How frequently we forget that everything is for him and about him. We forget that he is to be first, in our honor and in our worship. Whenever the gospel slips from our conscious thought, our religion becomes all about our performance, and then we think everything that happens or will ever happen isa bout us. When I forget the incarnation, sinless life, death, resurrection, and ascension, I quickly believe that I'm supposed to be the unrivaled supreme, and matchless one. It's at this point that I'm particularly in need of an intravenous dose of gospel truth. He is preeminent."
Author: Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
13. "Un homme sans passion e sans argent reste maitre de sa personne; mais un maleureux qui aime ne s'appartient plus et ne peut pas se tuer. L'amour nous donne une sorte de religion pour nous-meme, nous respectons en nous une autre vie, il devient alors le plus horibble des malheures avec une espérance, une espérance qui vous fait accepter des tortures"
Author: Honoré De Balzac
14. "The Earth's health is the only standard that is all-encompassing enough to overcome the ethnic, cultural, religious, and national tensions that are rending the world asunder. Only the Earth can become the central axis around which which world peace can be spun, for no religion is more compelling, no single nation larger, and no peoples older than the Earth itself. For that to happen, the collective human consciousness must expand enough so that our highest identification is as Earth-Humans."
Author: Ilchi Lee
15. "The early Christians made it a part of their religion to look for his return. They looked backward to the cross and the atonement for sin, and rejoiced in Christ crucified. They looked upward to Christ at the right hand of God, and rejoiced in Christ interceding. They looked forward to the promised return of their Master, and rejoiced in the thought that they would see him again. And we ought to do the same"
Author: J.C. Ryle
16. "For what is religion if not a kind of madness, and what is madness without a touch of religion?"
Author: James W. Robertson
17. "While I paid, they exchanged some pieties on how everyone has his or her own beliefs, et cetera. Then the woman said, "It's just like, ten people see a car accident, every single one is gonna tell the police something different" (a vivid way, I thought, of localizing the story about the blind men feeling an elephant)."Tell me which one of 'em gets out to help," the man said, "that's the one whose religion I'll listen to."
Author: John Jeremiah Sullivan
18. "In matters of religion and matrimony I never give advice, because I will not have anybody's torments in this world or the next laid to my charge."
Author: Lord Chesterfield
19. "People consider Islam as the best religion of world; I wonder if best of them is that much worse, I am really proud of being an Atheist."
Author: M.F. Moonzajer
20. "Human understanding is fallible, and we see through a glass, darkly. Any religion is a shadow of God. But the shadows of God are not God."
Author: Margaret Atwood
21. "No religion with a universal message . . . under one flag can even momentarily entertain the idea of employing force to spread its message. Swords can win territories, but not hearts. Force can bend heads, but not minds."
Author: Mirza Tahir Ahmad
22. "All religions lead to the same God, and all deserve the same respect. Anyone who chooses a religion is also choosing a collective way for worshipping and sharing the mysteries. Nevertheless, that person is the only one responsible for his or her actions along the way and has no right to shift responsibility for any personal decisions on to that religion."
Author: Paulo Coelho
23. "It's not so much religion per se, it's false certainty that worries me, and religion just has more than its fair share of false certainty or dogmatism. I'm really concerned when I see people pretending to know things they clearly cannot know."
Author: Sam Harris
