I know some of you guys don't see quotations from personalities as such a good source of information but, I personally, find them fascinating. They are so concentrated in their message and yet straight to the point.

Because this is thinkatheist.com I know most of them will be about, well, atheism, but I like quotes from every domain. You can post any favorite quote you like.

I would like to post some rules in this thread ( just for the sake of readability ).

1. If you post to this thread you must post only the quote ( in italics and with quotation marks ) and the author. ( you can link the author to wikipedia if you want )
2. If you want to comment please reply to a quote-post that has already been submitted. ( you can comment on each quote if you like but please don't break rule 1 and comment on the whole discussion )
3. You may post only a quote per post ( no multiple quotes )

My quotebook will come in handy. Can't wait to see your snippets of thought.

Enjoy!

Religion or the quote. I do not understand what 'this' refers to in that context.
For me, as an atheist, religion is stupid no matter what...

I was talking about the quote.
You are implying it is not accurate, especially for the 19th century.
I'm implying it is stupid. And from what I understood from your original post on this thread, you're posting your favourite quotes, like everyone else. So I guess you agree with it...
"prevents from killing the rich" translates to 'prevents the people from revolting'. As long as they have their God, state business matters little, as far as I've observed it.
If you say so...
Religion is what keeps the poor from getting rich. And I'm not talking striclty about money or property.
Agreed.
"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, is still there." - Philip K. Dick
"Debating Creationists on the topic of Evolution is rather like trying to play chess with a pigeon; it knocks the pieces over, craps on the board, and flies back to its flock to claim victory." - Scott D. Weitzenhoffer
LOL! Never heard that before, but it certainly made my day.
“Apparently people don't like the truth, but I do like it; I like it because it upsets a lot of people. If you show them enough times that their arguments are bullshit, then maybe just once, one of them will say, 'Oh! Wait a minute - I was wrong.' I live for that happening. Rare, I assure you.”
