"Yes." She gave a little laugh. "A great miracle. He is a kind of robot, but God has given him a soul - and not an ordinary human soul either, but the soul of a saint or an angel!"
"But ... I thought robots were ... bad ... "

#8. Will these millions of children, for generations upon future generations, know that some of their atoms cycled through this woman? [ ... ] Will they feel what she felt in her life, will their memories have flickering strokes of her memories, will they recall that moment long ago when she stood by the window, guilt ridden and confused, and watched as the tadr bird circled the cistern? No, it is not possible. [ ... ] But I will let them have their own brief glimpse of the Void, just at that moment they pass from living to dead, from animate to inanimate, from consciousness to that which has no consciousness. For a moment, they will understand infinity. - Author: Alan Lightman
Religion Meaning quotes by Alan Lightman
#9. We must also remember that in every little village-god and every little superstitious custom is that which we are accustomed to call our religious faith. But local customs are infinite and contradictory. Which are we to obey, and which not to obey? The Brāhmin of Southern India, for instance, would shrink in horror at the sight of another Brahmin eating meat; a Brahmin in the North thinks it a most glorious and holy thing to do - he kills goats by the hundred in sacrifice. If you put forward your custom, they are equally ready with theirs. Various are the customs all over India, but they are local. The greatest mistake made is that ignorant people always think that this local custom is the essence of our religion. - Author: Swami Vivekananda
Religion Meaning quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#10. It's tragic that most of us spend our private lives paradoxically thinking something is watching us and permanently disapproving. We say we believe in benevolent deities but smear them with hate and the power to smite. We see sin everywhere, when the only sin is when we forget to treat each other with respect. That is the sad secret that makes the Universe vulnerable. - Author: Sean J Halford
Religion Meaning quotes by Sean J Halford
#11. Don't forget the laws of God. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Religion Meaning quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#12. About one in twenty-five individuals are sociopathic, meaning, essentially, that they do not have a conscience. It is not that this group fails to grasp the difference between good and bad; it is that the distinction fails to limit their behavior. The intellectual difference between right and wrong does not bring on the emotional sirens and flashing blue lights, or the fear of God, that it does for the rest of us. Without the slightest blip of guilt or remorse, one in twenty-five people can do anything at all. - Author: Martha Stout
Religion Meaning quotes by Martha Stout
#13. We do not wish to judge anyone nor wish to be judged
in return. Meaning, we must dwell on the neutral side, in order to fully understand ourselves and those who are constantly causing us trouble in our daily lives. - Author: Mwanandeke Kindembo
Religion Meaning quotes by Mwanandeke Kindembo
#14. Many people confuse religion with God and walk away from them both. The point isn't Christianity, the point is being a Christian. - Author: Rob Bell
Religion Meaning quotes by Rob Bell
#15. We have no kin but each other, for our loves to our mothers and our wives demand that we protect them from what we know. Ours is the fellowship of strangers who know a secret that we cannot express. We are both of us broken, shattered, hollow and alone. Only for the ones we love do we remain, painted dolls in the playhouse of this life. In them we must find our meaning. In them we must hold to hope. - Author: Claire North
Religion Meaning quotes by Claire North
#16. We are ultimately unknowable to ourselves and others. Our past and future are mostly unknowable. God is unknowable. For the present the universe - its origins and its destiny - is unknowable, as is whether there are many universes. Infinity is unknowable. These are some of the fundamental reasons why I call myself an agnostic. - Author: Michael Krasny
Religion Meaning quotes by Michael Krasny
#17. For centuries, the mystics of spirit had existed by running a protection racket - by making life on earth unbearable, then charging you for consolation and relief, by forbidding all the virtues that make existence possible, then riding on the shoulders of your guilt, by declaring production and joy to be sins, then collecting blackmail from the sinners. - Author: Ayn Rand
Religion Meaning quotes by Ayn Rand
#18. I'm an atheist, and I believe religion is totally against human rights and women's rights. - Author: Taslima Nasrin

Religion Meaning quotes by Richard Strauss
#20. Why did God do it? or is there really a Devil who led to the Fall? Souls in Heaven said "We want to try mortal existence, O God, Lucifer said it's great!" - Bang, down we fall, to this, to concentration camps, gas ovens, barbed wire, atom bombs, television murders, Bolivian starvation, thieves in silk, thieves in neckties, thieves in office, paper shufflers, bureaucrats, insult, rage, dismay, horror, terrified nightmares, secret death of hangovers, cancer, ulcers, strangulation, pus, old age, old age homes, canes, puffed flesh, dropped teeth, stink, tears, and goodbye. Somebody else write it, I dont know how. - Author: Jack Kerouac
Religion Meaning quotes by Jack Kerouac
#21. Our religious institutions have far too often become handmaidens of the status quo, while the genuine religious experience is anything but that. True religion is by nature disruptive of
what has been, giving birth to the eternally new. - Author: Marianne Williamson
Religion Meaning quotes by Marianne Williamson
#22. Religion is a great force - the only real motive force in the world; but what you fellows don't understand is that you must get at a man through his own religion and not through yours. - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Religion Meaning quotes by George Bernard Shaw

Religion Meaning quotes by Tom Lehrer
#25. Like the people of Israel who created a golden calf to represent God while Moses was away, fundamentalist Christians have built their own idols to represent God until Jesus returns. The religion of fundamentalism is idolatry. - Author: Mel White
Religion Meaning quotes by Mel White
#26. A rainy day ceases to have meaning for a person who has lived in the open under a monsoon cloud most of his life. - Author: Vikas Swarup

Religion Meaning quotes by Daya Kudari
#28. Contraceptive methods are like putting a premium on vice. It makes men and women reckless ... As it is, man has sufficiently degraded woman for his lust, and [contraception] , no matter how well meaning the advocates may be, will still further degrade her. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
Religion Meaning quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#29. The action of giving is in a certain vibratory level, meaning giving exists in a certain plane of consciousness. - Author: Frederick Lenz
Religion Meaning quotes by Frederick Lenz
#30. Yes, I do think the ruling class in America would like to grab everything for themselves, because they were brought up that way, and early American Puritans somehow had it wired into their religion that poverty is a sign that God doesn't like you, that you're not "saved," that money, on the other hand, is a sign of God's approval. They say the middle class in this country is shrinking, but I don't really know who the "they" is in that sentence. I tend to think there's a natural process of balances -- that when the very rich press their luck too far, there's a danger of a backlash, and the rich know it. There's often a time when the bully on the playground does one bad thing too many and all the little weaklings gang up on him, and that's the end of that particular pattern. I look at that stuff as a novelist, and as a human being, but I try not to get too worked up about it. I think of myself as wearing the invisible tee shirt with "You can kill me but you can't impress me" printed on it. Every second I spend laughing is a second I don't have to think about Vice President Cheney, for instance. - Author: Carolyn See
Religion Meaning quotes by Carolyn See
#31. You spoke just now of having a religion. Is it really true that you
have one?"
"Oh," said Syme with a beaming smile, "we are all Catholics now."
"Then may I ask you to swear by whatever gods or saints your religion
involves that you will not reveal what I am now going to tell you to any
son of Adam, and especially not to the police? Will you swear that! If
you will take upon yourself this awful abnegation if you will consent
to burden your soul with a vow that you should never make and a
knowledge you should never dream about, I will promise you in return
"You will promise me in return?" inquired Syme, as the other paused.
"I will promise you a very entertaining evening." Syme suddenly took off his hat. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Religion Meaning quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#32. Should the girls decide to go for a walk, they would need to change into a different outfit, a light woollen tweed suit and sturdier boots - but on simpler days, such as for the garden party, they make mercifully few changes. Cora, like many married ladies in her position, takes the opportunity on quiet afternoons to take off her corset and wear a teagown for an hour or two before getting into her evening dress. Its huge advantage was that it was always ornately decorated but simply cut, meaning it was the only garment a woman could conceivably get in and out of alone, as it could be worn without a corset underneath. Worn between five and seven o'clock, it gave rise to the French phrase 'cinq a sept'. This referred to the hours when lovers were received, the only time of day when a maid wouldn't need to be there to help you undress and therefore discover your secret. Lady Colin Campbell's divorce had hinged on the fact that her clothes had clearly been fastened by a man who didn't know what he was doing; when her lady's maid saw her for the next change, the fastenings were higgledy-piggledy. But for Cora, the teagown is not for any illicit behaviour, just for respite from her underpinnings. - Author: Jessica Fellowes
Religion Meaning quotes by Jessica Fellowes
#33. The spirit dwells in a soul. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Religion Meaning quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#34. If i believe my truth is true and you believe your truth is true,what if my truth says yours is a it still true? - Author: Lecrea
Religion Meaning quotes by Lecrea
#35. The secret of understanding poetry is to hear poetry's words as what they are: the full self's most intimate speech, half waking, half dream. You listen to a poem as you might listen to someone you love who tells you their truest day. Their words might weep, joke, whirl, leap. What's unspoken in the words will still be heard. It's also the way we listen to music: You don't look for extractable meaning, but to be moved. - Author: Jane Hirshfield
Religion Meaning quotes by Jane Hirshfield
#36. One can be a good person and still believe that certain behaviors are a sin. I personally think lying is a sin, but some of my best friends are liars. - Author: Tom King
Religion Meaning quotes by Tom King
#37. He read the letter again, but could not take in any more meaning than he had done the first time and was reduced to staring at the handwriting itself. She had made her g's the same way he did : he searched through the letter for every one of them, and each felt like a friendly little wave glimpsed from behind a veil. The letter was an incredible treasure, proof that Lily Potter had lived, really lived, that her warm hand had once moved across this parchment, tracing ink into these letters, these words, words about him, Harry, her son. - Author: J.K. Rowling
Religion Meaning quotes by J.K. Rowling
#38. I had a long talk with my dear Fat Mary that night, because I had many questions. Could someone actually be beaten to death by such a nun? Did Mother Rufina, the new Superior, know that Sister Clotilda was so cruel? Who let her work with children? Could nuns go to hell?
Fat Mary told me she didn't know the answers to my questions, but she reminded me that it was her role to take my worries and burdens and keep them for me until a time when I could understand them. - Author: Maria Nhambu
Religion Meaning quotes by Maria Nhambu
#39. Monstrous wars that had killed tens of thousands of innocent people weren't enough to inspire enlightened self-interest. Tiny loans, on the other hand, were. Money has no religion. - Author: Bob Harris
Religion Meaning quotes by Bob Harris
#40. Religion taught us to return good for evil. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
Religion Meaning quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#41. Until one nation ceases its attempts to dominate another, there will never be true freedom. Until one religion relinquishes its quest to prove its god superior to that of another, there shall never be world peace. We will never truly prosper or experience lasting harmony, until we refrain from preaching the gospel of our own moral values and our personal preferences by forcing it upon others. - Author: Anthon St. Maarten
Religion Meaning quotes by Anthon St. Maarten
#42. love is a simple word with a complicated meaning - Author: Joanne
Religion Meaning quotes by Joanne
#43. The child will leave the nest. The best paint job will crack. The best play will become boring. The best work will grow tedious. The best art will lose meaning. The greatest creation will decay. Behind all this, lies my true self. - Author: Vironika Tugaleva
Religion Meaning quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#44. When language in common use in any country becomes irregular and depraved, it is followed by their ruin and degradation. For what do terms used without skill or meaning, which are at once corrupt and misapplied, denote but a people listless, supine, and ripe for servitude? - Author: John Milton
Religion Meaning quotes by John Milton
#45. Religion, richest favor of the skies. - Author: William Cowper
Religion Meaning quotes by William Cowper
