Thomas Paine

The following are quotes taken from “The Age of Reason Part One” in The Thomas Paine Reader.

“I believe in one God, and no more; and I hope for happiness beyond this life.”

“I believe in the equality of man; and I believe that religious duties consist in doing justice, loving mercy, and endeavouring to make our fellow-creatures happy.”

“…the creation we behold is the real and ever-existing Word of God, in which we cannot be deceived.  It proclaims His power, it demonstrates His wisdom, it manifests His goodness and beneficence.”
