“Religion. It's given people hope in a world torn apart by religion.”
― Jon Stewart
A fool never learns from his mistakes.  A smart man learns from his mistakes.  A wise man learns from the mistakes of others.  That is why wise men study history.

It is more a religious quote than quote about religion but it is one of a few utterances made by believers that I agree with:

Whosoever destroys a single soul, the Torah regards as guilty as though he had destroyed an entire world; and whosoever preserves a single soul the Torah ascribes merit to him as though he had preserved an entire world.
The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Mikhail Bakunin.

Favorite Quotes about Atheism, Agnosticism, And Religion
When we entertain, therefore, any suspicion, that a philosophical term is employed without any meaning or idea (as is but too frequent), we need but enquire, from what impression is that supposed idea derived? And if it be impossible to assign any, this will serve to confirm our suspicion.

- David Hume - An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding
