Buddhism is a philosophy and a way of life, where mindfulness and acceptance of the life the way it is (as a suffering and impermanence) play key roles.
It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion. ~ Francis Bacon

If you can't believe in God, chances are your God is too small.
~ James Phillips
During the crusades all were religious mad, and now all are mad for want of it.
~ Captain J. G. Stedman
If you don't believe in God, all you have to believe in is decency. Decency is
very good. Better decent than indecent. But I don't think it's enough.
~ Harold Macmillan
What you don't understand is that it is possible to be an atheist, it is possible
not to know if God exists or why He should, and yet to believe that man does
not live in a state of nature but in history, and that history as we know it now
began with Christ, it was founded by Him on the Gospels.
~ Boris Pasternak
No one can be an unbeliever nowadays. The Christian Apologists have left one
nothing to disbelieve.
~ Hector Hugh Munro
An atheist is a man who believes himself an accident.
~ Francis Thompson
Among the repulsions of atheism for me has been its drastic uninterestingness
as an intellectual position. Where was the ingenuity, the ambiguity, the humanity
(in the Harvard sense) of saying that the universe just happened to happen and
that when we're dead we're dead?
~ John Updike
Atheism is rather in the life than in the heart of man.
~ Francis Bacon
Atheism is the result of ignorance and pride; of strong sense and feeble reasons;
of good eating and ill-living. It is the plague of society, the corrupter of manners,
and the underminer of property.
~ Jeremy Collier
A disbelief in God does not result in a belief in nothing; disbelief in God usually
results in a belief in anything.
The only atheism is the denial of truth.
He who never thirsts for God here, will thirst for Him before he has been dead
~ B. North
The three great apostles of practical atheism, that make converts without
persecuting, and retain them without preaching, are wealth, health and power.
~ C C Colton
Atheist's don't exist. If you ask anyone why they are an atheist they will proceed
to explain their religion of non belief.
An atheist is one who hopes the Lord will do nothing to disturb his disbelief.
~ Franklin P. Jones
To doubt is not sin, but to be contented to remain in doubt when God has
provided "many infallible proofs" to cure it, is.
~ Irwin H. Linton
There is no being eloquent for atheism. In that exhausted receiver the mind
cannot use its wings,- the clearest proof that it is out of its element.
No man will say, "There is no God" 'till he is so hardened in sin that it has
become his interest that there should be none to call him to account.
~ Mathew Henry
