Mark Twain (Quote)
“Man is the only religious animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion—several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat, if his theology isn't straight. He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother's path to happiness and heaven.”
—-Mark Twain (1835-1910), Letters from the Earth, "The Damned Human Race," 1909
