"The Bible is not my book, and Christianity is not my religion. I could never give assent to the long, complicated statements of Christian dogma."
"The Americans combine the notions of Christianity and of liberty so intimately in their minds, that it is impossible to make them conceive the one without the other."
Alexis de Tocqueville
"How many observe Christ's birthday! How few, his precepts! O! 'tis easier to keep holidays than commandments."
"The puritanism of Christianity has played havoc with the moderation that an enlightened and tolerant critical spirit would have produced. I've noticed that in whatever country, county, town, or other region there is a regulation enjoining temperance, the population seems to be entirely composed of teetotallers and drunkards. There's a Bible on that shelf there. But I keep it next to Voltaire - poison and antidote."
"So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence."
"The Bible looks like it started out as a game of Mad Libs."
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."
"A man who is eating or lying with his wife or preparing to go to sleep in humility, thankfulness and temperance, is, by Christian standards, in an infinitely higher state than one who is listening to Bach or reading Plato in a state of pride."
"Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important."
"Now is our chance to choose the right side. God is holding back to give us that chance. It won't last forever. We must take it or leave it."
"I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is its appointed consummation."
"The Psalmists in telling everyone to praise God are doing what all men do when they speak of what they care about."
"Those who would most scornfully repudiate Christianity as a mere 'opiate of the people' have a contempt for the rich, that is, for all mankind except the poor."
"Christ died for men precisely because men are not worth dying for; to make them worth it."
"Be sure that the ins and outs of your individuality are no mystery to Him; and one day they will no longer be a mystery to you."
"'You come of the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve,' said Aslan. 'And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor in earth.'"
"If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this."
"Unless Christianity is wholly false, the perception of ourselves which we have in moments of shame must be the only true one."
"Heaven offers nothing that a mercenary soul can desire."
"Unless the religious claims of the Bible are again acknowledged, its literary claims will, I think, be given only 'mouth honour' and that decreasingly."
