All religions are designed to teach us how to live, joyfully, serenely, and kindly, in the midst of suffering.

It is ironic that the one thing that all religions recognize as separating us from our creator, our very self-consciousness, is also the one thing that divides us from our fellow creatures. It was a bitter birthday present from evolution.
What we all have in common is an appreciation of kindness and compassion; all the religions have this. We all lean towards love.

There's no way you can misunderstand the teachings of the Qur'an, there's no way you can misunderstand the teachings of the Bible, there's no way you can misunderstand the teachings of the Bhaghavad Gita, or of the Book of Mormon, or of the other sacred texts of many of those religions.
Neale Donald Walsch
Religion provides the only story that is fundamentally consoling in the face of the worst possible experiences - the death of a parent, for instance. In fact, many religions take away the problem entirely, because their adherents ostensibly believe that they're going to be reunited with everyone they love, and death is an illusion.

King Hussein I

Neale Donald Walsch

All... religions show the same disparity between belief and practice, and each is safe till it tries to exclude the rest.
Thomas Wentworth Higginson

I'm not religious, but by nature I am spiritual. I'm an artist, and creativity seems to go hand in hand with spirituality. But I have a knee-jerk reaction against organized religions. Actually, I have knee-jerk reactions against anything that's organized.
A city like London is sociable in a sense that there are people gathering in bars and restaurants, concerts and lectures.

Alain de Botton
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
