Man Alone is A Religious Animal

Religion is not a matter of God, church, holy cause, etc.  These are but accessories.  The source of religious preoccupation is in the self, or rather the rejection of the self.  Dedication is the obverse side of self-rejection.  Man alone is a religious animal because, as Montaigne points out, "it is a malady confined to man, and not seen in any other creature, to hate and despise ourselves." ~ Eric Hoffer (1902-1983)
