Paganism Quotations

Paganism is wholesome because it faces the facts of life.
Aleister Crowley

What is popularly called fame is nothing but an empty name and a legacy from paganism.
Desiderius Erasmus

The virtue of paganism was strength; the virtue of Christianity is obedience.
Augustus Hare

I would love to go back to any time in European history, especially in Irish history, to the second or third century, prior to the arrival of Christianity when Paganism flourished.

Gabriel Byrne

For those who struggle with anti-pagan prejudices and stereotypes, Humanist Paganism might be a powerful educational tool. It can show that a pagan can be a sophisticated, cosmopolitan, and enlightened person, and that a pagan culture can be artistically vibrant, environmentally conscious, intellectually stimulating, and socially just.
Brendan Myers
