all our irritations and resentments flit away,
and a sunny spirit takes their place.”

“Man is the religious animal.
He is the only religious animal.
He is the only animal that has the ‘True Religion’
several of them.
He is the only animal
that loves his neighbor as himself
and cuts his throat, if his theology isn’t straight.
He has made a graveyard of the globe
in trying his honest best to smooth his brother’s path
to happiness and heaven.”

~ Mark Twain

“Death,
the only immortal who treats us all alike,
whose peace and whose refuge are for us all.
The soiled and the pure,
the rich and the poor,
the loved and the unloved.”

“All schools, all colleges, have two great functions:
to confer, and to conceal, valuable knowledge.
The theological knowledge which they conceal
cannot justly be regarded as less valuable
than that which they reveal.
That is, when a man is buying a basket of strawberries
it can profit him to know
that the bottom half of it is rotten.”

~ Mark Twain
