For all of the creeds are false, and all of the creeds are true; And low at the shrines where my brothers bow, there will I bow too; For no form of a god, and no fashion Man has made in his desperate passion, But is worthy some worship of mine; Not too hot with a gross belief, Nor yet too cold with pride, I will bow me down where my brothers bow, Humble, but open eyed. (Quote by - Donald Marquis)

As the skull of the man grows broader, so do his creeds. And his gods they are shaped in his image and mirror his needs.

Every one's true worship was that which he found in use in the place where he chanced to be. (Quote by - Michael Eyquen de Montaigne)

Ev'n them who kept thy truth so pure of old, When all our fathers worshipp'd stocks and stones, Forget not. (Quote by - John Milton)

Ah, why Should we, in the world's riper years, neglect God's ancient sanctuaries, and adore Only among the crowd and under roofs That our frail hands have raised? (Quote by - William Cullen Bryant)

Intend some fear; Be not you spoke with but by mighty suit; And look you get a prayer book in your hand And stand between two churchmen, good my lord, For on that ground I'll make a holy descant; And be not easily won to our requests. (Quote by - William Shakespeare)

The heart ran o'er With silent worship of the great of old!-- The dead, but sceptred sovereigns, who still rule Our spirits from their urns. (Quote by - Lord Byron)

So shall they build me altars in their zeal, Where knaves shall minister, and fools shall kneel: Where faith may mutter o'er her mystic spell, Written in blood--and Bigotry may swell The sail he spreads for Heav'n with blasts from hell! (Quote by - Edward Moore)
