„Twas in Religion that he gloried by whom till the Day of Judgement
The Arabs excel the Persians in glory.
He who lacks religion is ignoble and mean,
Though Feridun be his maternal, and Jamshid his paternal uncle.“

translated by Edward. G. Browne, A Literary History of Persia, 1909, p.268

„We define religion as the assumption that life has meaning. Religion, or lack of it, is shown not in some intellectual or verbal formulations but in one's total orientation to life. Religion is whatever the individual takes to be his ultimate concern.“

—  Rollo May US psychiatrist 1909 - 1994

Quelle: Man’s Search for Himself (1953), p. 180
Kontext: We define religion as the assumption that life has meaning. Religion, or lack of it, is shown not in some intellectual or verbal formulations but in one's total orientation to life. Religion is whatever the individual takes to be his ultimate concern. One's religious attitude is to be found at that point where he has a conviction that there are values in human existence worth living and dying for.

„Therefore if his actions are opposed to those which are demanded by a given religion he cannot assert that he belongs to that religion.“

—  G. I. Gurdjieff influential spiritual teacher, Armenian philosopher, composer and writer 1866 - 1949

In Search of the Miraculous (1949)
Kontext: RELIGION IS DOING; a man does not merely think his religion or feel it, he lives his religion as much as he is able, otherwise it is not religion but fantasy or philosophy. Whether he likes it or not he shows his attitude towards religion by his actions and he can show his attitude only by his actions. Therefore if his actions are opposed to those which are demanded by a given religion he cannot assert that he belongs to that religion.

God to God bears wondering witness how His gospel flames and fades.“

—  Algernon Charles Swinburne English poet, playwright, novelist, and critic 1837 - 1909

"The Altar of Righteousness" in Harper's Monthly (June 1904).
Kontext: God by God flits past in thunder, till His glories turn to shades;
God to God bears wondering witness how His gospel flames and fades.
More was each of these, yet they were, than man their servant seemed:
Dead are all of these, and man survives who made them while he dreamed.
