I liked this quote. This comes from an article about the religious views of American presidents:

Adams believed that the miraculous and enthusiastic excesses of religion were dangerous. In reference to a religiously orthodox colleague in law school, Adams wrote: "When I observe into what inconsistent absurdities those persons run who make speculative, metaphysical religion a matter of importance, I am fully determined never to puzzle myself in the mazes of religious discussion, to content myself with practicing the dictates of God and reason so far as I can judge for myself, and resign myself into the arms of a being whose tender mercies are all over his works."
