Our Town (Thornton Wilder) Quote I really like

"We all know that something is eternal. And it ain’t houses and it ain’t names, and it ain’t earth, and it ain’t even the stars . . . everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings. All the greatest people ever lived have been telling us that for five thousand years and yet you’d be surprised how people are always losing hold of it. There’s something way down deep that’s eternal about every human being."

What do you think about this quote? It seems like a case for God that isn't tied to any specific religion or faith.

It certainly seems like a religious reflection.

Sure maybe, but I wouldn't say it's specifically Christian
