Fethullah Gulen
To worship the product and ignore its development leads to dilettantism and reaction.

The Obama administration has been curtailing press freedom – but that hasn’t ended the press’ drool-cup worship for their beloved president.

B. J. Armstrong
Put your idol worship on firemen or a schoolteacher or a rescue worker or a first-aid worker or Doctors Without Borders. I love those guys. Those are your heroes.
Jason Jones
I grew up performing in glee club at my school; I was the ostrich in ‘Peter Pan,’ and then I was super-involved in church choir and worship leading at my church. So I always loved music and was involved with it, but never really thought it was what I wanted to do until I started writing.
Kelsea Ballerini
We try to do everything that we can to make Christ the center of attention. Our goal is to kind of broaden the definition of worship. I know that God has always used us as a forefront for people to draw closer to Him and get into His presence.
Bart Millard
I liken the Queen thing to being in a worship service. Everyone comes having grown up with this music. It’s in their blood, in their souls. Every night, it’s always a huge standing ovation.

Lauren Southern
Of all the human figurines discovered so far from 30,000-3,000BC, 92% are of the female form. This is not to say there was any kind of matriarchy or worship of a mother goddess – far from it – but women are conspicuous by their presence.
Bettany Hughes
When we really worship anything, we love not only its clearness but its obscurity. We exult in its very invisibility.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

My god is all gods in one. When I see a beautiful sunset, I worship the god of Nature; when I see a hidden action brought to light, I worship the god of Truth; when I see a bad man punished and a good man go free, I worship the god of Justice; when I see a penitent forgiven, I worship the god of Mercy.

Evan Osnos

Billy Eichner
I seek a deeper truth, but I don’t think I have to go to a building designated for worship to find it.

Greg Graffin
The earlier practice of the Church had been more or less to employ in worship under the presidency of the pastor or pastors, the gifts of the congregation.

‘Ravi’ means ‘sun.’ It’s a Sanskrit original word. And ‘Shankar’ is another name of Shiva, one of the holy trinity god that we worship.
Ravi Shankar
All of the great music ever written is based upon the Mass. I mean, it’s pretty extraordinary stuff, and I think it’s done the world some good. And if you take a look at some of the mosques in the world, it calls you to worship the kind of beauty that’s in there.
Kelsey Grammer

I don’t worship the Bible, I worship the God who gave the Bible.
Michael Eric Dyson

Mrunal Thakur
There is nothing which any way pertaineth to the worship of God left to the determination of human laws.

Helen Thomas
I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.
Henry Ward Beecher
We do the weigh-in, then go for a walk, then have breakfast, then I listen to worship songs on my iPod because I’m a Christian. I always read the same Bible verses, too. We do the same warm-up a lot of the time as well. But, I have no superstitions before a fight.

Ahmed Zewail
Every man now worships gold, all other reverence being done away.
Sextus Propertius

David A. Bednar
In the context of Quaker worship, it is perfectly appropriate for any person in the congregation to speak a timely word from the Lord.
Richard Foster
Google has placed its faith in data, while Apple worships the power of design. This dichotomy made the two companies complementary. Apple would ship the phones and computers, while Google would provide Maps, Search, YouTube, and other web tools that made the devices more useful.
Ben Parr
Even the most left-wing politicians worship wealth creation – as the political-action-committee collection plate is passed.
P. J. O’Rourke

Barack Obama
Chicago is one of the greatest places when it comes to sports. It kind of reminds me of my hometown in Split. It doesn’t matter how bad the soccer team is, everybody worships the soccer, the players and the games.
Toni Kukoc
Worship means reverence and humility it means revering your real self and humbling delusions.
The poorer people and criminals of Mexico who are not very religious but not quite atheists, either, worship Saint Death.

I believe Florida deserves a candidate who will work for Florida every single day and campaign for every Florida voter, no matter where they live, how they worship, or what language they speak around the dinner table.
Carlos Lopez-Cantera
The difference must be distinguished between worship and respect. Islam orders you to obey and respect, as long as you are not worshiping anything other than God… Islam is a religion of peace. You don’t attack. You explain.
Hakeem Olajuwon
The person who thinks I worship the devil and kill animals is just as important as someone who makes an interpretation that’s closer to what I intended.
Marilyn Manson
Scientology is not written with disrespect toward God. It doesn’t worship something that is evil. It is scientific, mathematical, and spiritual. The black community has to check it out and see what’s there. I’m not saying it’s for everyone, but you have to take a look.
Doug E. Fresh
I think one of my greatest gifts is leading worship.
Michael W. Smith
I vehemently oppose clearing out a peaceful protest for a photo op, especially a photo op that makes a mockery of a place of worship and the uses the Bible as a prop. It’s just wrong.
Mike Espy
What is going on in America is extreme. The youth cult, they worship youth so much it’s almost paranoid. And LA is the Mecca of it all; they’re taking it to the hilt.
Billie Joe Armstrong
I was in a bar in Rio and a cow walked in, I looked into its eyes, and I saw such tranquillidad, serenity. Then I started seeing cows everywhere. I realise why the Indians worship them.

Our founding documents didn’t just protect the right to bear arms: they were designed to protect all the principles upon which America was founded – and the first among those were freedom of worship, peaceful assembly, and the right to free speech.
Anthea Butler
Some people fascinate me. They really worship at the altar of their careers, you know? And it’s terrifying. It’s sort of like setting a table and waiting for someone to come along and whoosh – push all the plates onto the floor.
Diane Lane
What you want to worship above youth, I think, is beauty, and beauty is so beyond just appearances after a while. Because you can be with someone who’s good-looking; if they open their mouths and they’re an idiot, then they cease to be beautiful very quickly.
Patton Oswalt
I choose to worship not believing in God and government should not thrust a religious idea down my throat.
Michael Newdow

Jeremy Camp
Most believers struggle to really believe in the supernatural as a meaningful, deterministic reality except during moments when they are drawn to it, perhaps during a worship service or while reading a novel like ‘Adam.’ Being drawn to this truth is the first step to living a life in accordance to this truth.
Ted Dekker
What I find is that we’re all human beings and that it’s all very similar, what we believe. At the bottom, there’s really not that much difference between Christians and Muslims and Hindus and Buddhists. We all worship God.

Fairuza Balk
Primarily affecting low-information voters and members of the mainstream media, Obama Worship Syndrome attributes impossible capabilities to Obama’s political opponents, finds excuses for every Obama failure in everyone around him and praises the president as the finest politician – nay, human being – of our time.
Ben Shapiro
All writers of the Chaldaean period associate monotheism in the closest way with unity of worship.
Julius Wellhausen

Charlie Brooker
Not everyone can lead worship.
Michael W. Smith
Genius worship is the inevitable sign of an uncreative age.

James E. Faust
Claiming for ourselves liberty of conscience, liberty to worship, we shall see to it that every other individual enjoys the same right.

Nidhhi Agerwal
I don’t believe in hero worship.
Bobby Fischer

Sonny Sandoval
Television brings with it two dangerous hazards: the worship of celebrity and the blurring of reality and fantasy.
Michael Portillo
At Christmas, I am always struck by how the spirit of togetherness lies also at the heart of the Christmas story. A young mother and a dutiful father with their baby were joined by poor shepherds and visitors from afar. They came with their gifts to worship the Christ child.
Queen Elizabeth II
The Qur’an, throughout all of its verses, aims mainly to establish and confirm four basic, universal truths: the existence and Oneness of the Maker of the universe; Prophethood; bodily Resurrection; and worship and justice.

C. S. Lewis
We might experience bad things in our lives. But if we worship a God who suffered more than us, this is our highest example. And there are lots of challenges in our lives. This does not mean we give up.
Mosab Hassan Yousef
I’m a practicing Christian – and I’m going to keep practicing till I get it right – but I don’t feel everyone has to practice the same religion that I do. You have a right to worship who you choose and how you choose to.
Jane Elliot
To allow the construction of places of worship other than Islamic ones in Saudi Arabia, it would be like asking the Vatican to build a mosque inside of it.
Abdullah of Saudi Arabia
This is the beauty of the Qur’an: it asks you to reflect and reason, and not to worship the sun or moon but the One who has created everything. The Qur’an asks man to reflect upon the sun and moon and God’s creation in general.
Cat Stevens
Since the turn of the 20th century, members of the Jewish community in Upper East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia have been meeting together to celebrate and worship.
William L. Jenkins
My Mt. Rushmore of hero worship would include Ralph Waldo Emerson, Marcus Aurelius, Frank Sinatra and Barry White.
Karen Duffy
The script was always the most important thing to me and I loved the script. For one thing, I’ve always admired trees. I just worship them. Think what trees have witnessed, what history, such as living through the Civil War, yet they still survive.
Kim Novak
Michael Arndt, that guy – you’re just supposed to say nice things about other writers, but I worship Michael Arndt.
Damon Lindelof
Neither Muslims nor anyone else truly worships the true God if they reject Jesus as he really is in the Gospels.
John Piper
As Christians, we worship a victimized Lord. We should expect to suffer and should have particular compassion on those who hurt emotionally and physically. But we do not resemble the Suffering Servant when we take pains to show off our suffering.
Kevin DeYoung
Could the one whom Christians worship be merely a mythological creation, or is he real? These questions have exercised many great minds and have been the dominant issue in New Testament studies during this century.
John Clayton
The success that Americans are said to worship is success of a specific sort: accomplished not through hard work, primarily, but through the ingenious angle, the big break. Sit down at a lunch counter, stand back up a star. Invest in a new issue and watch it soar. Split a single atom, win a war.
Walter Kirn
Conservatives may worship Adam Smith’s ‘invisible hand,’ but for Obama, the helping hand comes in large measure from the public, not the private sector. To call this ‘socialism’ is to do violence to the word and to the concept. To call it ‘un-American’ is a smear.
Jeff Greenfield
People have been asking me since I did ‘Carried Me, The Worship Project,’ ‘When are you going to do another worship project?’ And that’s my favorite one.
Jeremy Camp
I may worship the image of the Lord; but that act is worthless if it is not accompanied with devotion. In the absence of devotion, the idol will just be a piece of stone, and so shall I; and the worship will only mean that a stone is facing a stone!
Vinoba Bhave
If we don’t change from a world society that worships money and power to one that worships compassion and generosity, I think we’ll be extinct by mid-century. I don’t say that as an alarmist or as a pessimist.
Patch Adams
More are the names of God and infinite are the forms through which He may be approached. In whatever name and form you worship Him, through them you will realise Him.
There can be but little liberty on earth while men worship a tyrant in heaven.
Robert Green Ingersoll
There’s two extremes in male sport: there’s complete and total worship of them, or complete and utter contempt. Those extremes create huge problems at either end. And it creates distance, too, and leads them into a bubble.
Ellyse Perry
Worship is transcendent wonder.
Thomas Carlyle
Our country’s political discourse and debate are enriched by discussions of the political implications of our faith traditions, whether they are taking place in our communities, at our dinner tables, or in our places of worship.
David Price
Before my time on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’ Halloween was my favorite day of the year since I was a little kid. It’s the day we worship the macabre and live vicariously through the costumes that we wear.
Sharon Needles
In this business, if you’re a success, there’s some folks who actually worship you. I have been to some places where it’s impossible to walk across the stage without having the major portion of my outfit torn off for souvenirs.
Hank Williams
Being queer you’re supposed to adore figure skating. It’s a sport, not an art. I love the costumes and hate the music and of course I worship Johnny Weir because so does he. Also he’s real. It’s a full gay thing and it always has been.
Mark Morris
I’d worship the ground you walked on if only you walked in a better neighborhood.
Billy Wilder
By the last decades of the 21st century, church worship will still take the form of reading passages of traditional texts – the Bible, the Koran, the Rig Veda – but physicist-priests will preside over the ceremonies.
Frank Tipler
It’s hard to escape bullies that come in many shapes and forms. The processed food industry, corrupt religious organizations, and celebrity worship culture are just a few that we deal with in modern times.
Tara Stiles
Our Puritan forefathers, though bitterly denouncing all forms and ceremonies, were great respecters of persons; and in nothing was the regard for wealth and position more fully shown than in designating the seat in which each person should sit during public worship.
Alice Morse Earle
A service of worship is primarily a service to God. When we realize this and act upon it, we make it a service to men.
Ralph W. Sockman

Carson Wentz
In this part of the world, only Maine gives winter the welcome and the worship it should have.

Israel Houghton
It may sound crazy to people, but I don’t follow any spiritual leader or worship at any house of God. I just feel you should be good to people around you, your family and friends.
Gauri Khan
Perhaps nothing helps us make the movement from our little selves to a larger world than remembering God in gratitude. Such a perspective puts God in view in all of life, not just in the moments we set aside for worship or spiritual disciplines. Not just in the moments when life seems easy.
Henri Nouwen
Worship is a way of seeing the world in the light of God.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
I respect and admire the Mormon faith. And I am eternally grateful that we live in a country where we have the freedom to worship as we choose.
Well, for one thing, in the tradition of Zen that I’ve practiced, there is no prayerful worship and there is no affirmation of a deity.

George Pataki
Ours is a multi-religious country, a multi-lingual country; we have many different modes of worship. We believe in peaceful and harmonious co-existence.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
How we express ourselves in worship remains up in the air.
Robert H. Schuller
The bedroom is an archetype. To me it stands for a lot of the silliness of our modern culture where the kind of things that we worship in our sacred spaces are based on media and movies because we don’t really have much else in the way of myths, if that makes sense.
Weyes Blood
I have quit chewing tobacco and don’t touch any lager beer, and I don’t speak to the girls at all. I am getting to be a perfect hermit; my fiddle, my dog, and my gun I almost worship.
Wild Bill Hickok
Mankind are divided into sects, and individuals think very differently on religious subjects, from the purest motives; and that gracious common Parent, who loves all his children alike, beholds with approbation every one who worships him in sincerity.
Joseph Lancaster
When I first began working in Japan, I had to confront the Japanese people’s excessive worship for foreign goods and the fixed idea of what clothes ought to be. I wanted to change the rigid formula of clothing that the Japanese followed.
Issey Miyake
In America you have the right to worship any way you choose. That’s why virtually every faith and every denomination on Earth has a presence in our land. You have a right to not believe in God at all.
Marco Rubio
People get involved not just in politics but in groups and sects and… forget the main reason why we’re here: to worship Allah.
Moeen Ali
There’s nobody more opposite from John Shaft than a kid who worships a banana as his god.
Richard Roundtree
I concluded that all religions had the same foundation – a belief in the supernatural – a power above nature that man could influence by worship – by sacrifice and prayer.
Robert Green Ingersoll
The name, Seventh-day Adventist, is a standing rebuke to the Protestant world. Here is the line of distinction between the worshipers of God, and those who worship the beast, and receive his mark. The great conflict is between the commandments of God and the requirements of the beast.
Ellen G. White
Evil wants you to think that its power is absolute, endless. It wants to so make you quake and quiver that all you’ll do is fall down and worship it.
Vernon Howard
The cat is such a perfect symbol of beauty and superiority that it seems scarcely possible for any true aesthete and civilised cynic to do other than worship it.
H. P. Lovecraft
In antiquity, a woman might be an object of worship or desire, but never of love.
Octavio Paz
I love monsters the way people worship holy images. To me, they really connect in a very fundamental way to my identity.
Guillermo del Toro
The eyes of some of the fans at Davis Cup matches scare me. There’s no light in them. Fixed emotions. Blind worship. Horror. It makes me think of what happened to us long ago.
Boris Becker
I’m a committed Christian. I worship in my own way. That’s my business. That’s not the business of the pharisees who are going to preach to me about what I do and then do something else.
Howard Dean
I have long believed that celebrity, the way we worship and package and sell our pop stars, is what filled the need for gods that was once filled by the pictures in stained glass. Hollywood is post-Christian Venice – in other words, a pantheon of saints without the hassle and heartache of religion.
Rich Cohen
We need a new order of ministers to stand in pulpits. It’s not enough to sing and praise God in worship services. Any religion that doesn’t encourage us to work together to end the needless suffering all around us is godless.
Susan L. Taylor
What I view as worship now is certainly a little different than how I used to view worship. I don’t see it as a verse in a chorus, on a big screen with words, like I used to. It’s just trying to be as real as possible in front of an audience.
Bart Millard
God’s supreme word to us is life; our highest worship of Him is love for the living.
Bjornstjerne Bjornson
I don’t like LA. The majority just seem to be so artificial. Look at how they worship everything they think is fashionable. Isn’t it sick?
Billie Joe Armstrong
I am a god of professional wrestling. You should worship every step I take and every word that comes out of my mouth.
Tommaso Ciampa
As someone who worships music, I believe it can never be ugly!
Shreya Ghoshal
I grew up on the North Shore of Chicago, and I don’t think I had a friend that wasn’t Jewish. I spent more time in a temple than any other house of worship. I’ve been to about 150 bar and bat mitzvahs.
Rachel Brosnahan
God made and governs the world invisibly, and has commanded us to love and worship him and no other God; to honor our parents and masters, and love our neighbours as ourselves; and to be temperate, just, and peaceable, and to be merciful even to brute beasts.
Isaac Newton
Human beings are free to worship anyone or anything.
Mahesh Bhatt
I can’t be stopped from offering my respect to places of worship.
Jaya Prada
All people who worship Allah, not each other, are equal before Him. We are entrusted to spread this message and to extend that call to all the people.
Osama bin Laden
I’m such a huge fan of Steve Howe, I worship him.
John Petrucci
If there is one God, then there is only His way to attain Him, not another. One must follow that way and reject the other. Worship not him who is born only to die, but Him who is eternal and is contained in the whole universe.
Guru Nanak
In a sense, the god we trust politically is a slightly different god than the one we bring into the fray when we enter a rock concert. One of the things I can say with absolute conviction is that I worship that god.
Pete Townshend
Human beings are at their core defined by what they worship rather than primarily by what they think, know, or believe. That is bound up with the central Augustinian claim that we are what we love.
Dallas Willard
Martin Luther King said, and it is sadly still true, that one of the most segregated times in America is the hour of worship.
Barney Frank
Revenge is the naked idol of the worship of a semi-barbarous age.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
I worship impersonal Nature, which is neither ‘good’ or ‘bad’, and who knows neither love nor hatred.
Savitri Devi
The slave is doomed to worship time and fate and death, because they are greater than anything he finds in himself, and because all his thoughts are of things which they devour.
Bertrand Russell
That’s the best worship you can get when the worship leader is there with no other intentions and ready to sing their heart out for the Lord.
Deborah Joy Winans
We must be both more conservative and more liberal than most students of Christian worship: conservative in holding exclusively to God’s commands in Scripture as our rule of worship, and liberal in defending the liberty of those who apply those.
John Frame
An authentic life is the most personal form of worship. Everyday life has become my prayer.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Dog – a kind of additional or subsidiary Deity designed to catch the overflow and surplus of the world’s worship.
Ambrose Bierce
Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses.
H. L. Mencken
In the Lord’s Prayer, the first petition is for daily bread. No one can worship God or love his neighbor on an empty stomach.
Woodrow Wilson
From the beginning, the Continental Congress had official chaplains, prayers, and days of fasting and Thanksgiving. When sessions opened in 1774, fear was voiced that the religious diversity of the country would make it hard to choose a form of worship.
M. Stanton Evans
I’ve been able to dig deeper into awareness of my own sinfulness, and take baby steps toward spiritual healing. I’m able to worship in an ancient communion full of awesome beauty, one that is now being blessed with quiet revival.
Frederica Mathewes-Green
I really like worship music. It settles my soul. Gets me back on track. The lyrics are almost like a prayer, so it’s my go-to.
Jodi Benson
I’m a God-fearing man who worships with my heart and with my life.
Willie Stargell
Rajneeshism is creating a Noah’s Ark of consciousness, remaining centered exactly in the middle of the cyclone. You can only escape within, and that’s what I teach. I do not teach worship of God or any other ritual but only a scientific way of coming to your innermost core.
Be yourself. The world worships the original.
Ingrid Bergman
In terms of worship, I think we ought to have the right people leading.
Michael W. Smith
As any Christian would understand, I feel church is sacred. For me, it is the place I worship, where I learn about God and feel closest to Him each week.
Ainsley Earhardt
We need worship for our spirit, fellowship for our soul and committed subservience for our body.
Larry Norman
