My Religion

My religion is to love justice, to long for the right, to love mercy, to pity suffering, to assist the weak, to forgive wrongs and remember benefits, to love the truth, to be sincere, to utter honest words, to love liberty, to wage relentless war against slavery in all its forms, to love husband and child and friend.

To be familiar with the mighty thoughts genius has expressed, the noble deeds of all the world.

To cultivate courage and cheerfulness, to make others happy, to fill my life with the splendour of generous acts, the warmth of loving words.

To discard error, to destroy prejudice, to receive new truths with gladness, to cultivate hope, and to see the calm beyond the storm, the dawn beyond the night.

To do the best that can be done and then be resigned.

This is the religion of reason, the creed of science.

This satisfies the brain and the heart.
Hat tip to Simon Birchenough.
