I like this quote. (At other times he said that he did not believe in a personal God, but here his use of the pronoun seems to reveal that he at one time believed.)

Buddha said it best but this is a great second... A superior spirit is the collective spirit, no one or God lays claim to it.

Sorry, I meant the Dalai Lama: "This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness". Dalai Lama

Such wisdom and honesty is rare.


Religion is the curse of a civilized world.
