Joshua Lieban's Quotes

"We hold it for a fundamental and undeniable truth, that religion, or the duty we owe our Creator and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence. The religion then of every man must be left to the conviction and conscience of every man; and it is the right of every man to exercise it as these may dictate. This right is in its nature an unalienable right."
James Madison's Quotes

"Four freedoms: The first is freedom of speech and expression - everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of everyone to worship God in his own way, everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want . . . everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear . . . anywhere in the world."
Franklin D. Roosevelt

"Helping hands are holier than praying lips."
Sathya Sai Baba

Edna St. Vincent Millay's Quotes

"All sects are different, because they come from men; morality is everywhere the same, because it comes from God."
Voltaire
