Hymn Quotations

There's an old hymn called 'How Can I Keep from Singing?' That's what writing feels like to me. I have to write. It's intrinsic to who I am. So it was a natural choice for me to try to pursue writing as a career. Truthfully, though, I still daydream about how fun it would be to ride on the back of a garbage truck.
Sarah Addison Allen

A religious life is a struggle and not a hymn.
Madame de Stael

Every formula which expresses a law of nature is a hymn of praise to God.
Maria Mitchell

You'll never even catch me doing that 'soft atheist' thing of very softly singing along or just mouthing the words, looking down at a hymn sheet every few seconds to check the words. To state the obvious, as an atheist, the hymn sheet is no use to me. So I just stand there, looking straight ahead or up at the ceiling, and do nothing.
John Niven

A Hank Cochran song in the studio is spiritual. It's like singing a hymn in a church.
Jamey Johnson
