    ... that sums up your beliefs or describes your religion or just plain talks to you?

    Post one or two and tell me why you like them.

    "I think, therefore I am"
    -René Descartes

    It sums up the idea that I am here. You are here. Others are here. Whatever reason (if there is one and there most likely is) or however it occured (whatever you believe God or a creation force is).......

    it is.

    I don't remember quotes all that well, but there are a couple that are important to me:

    And then the ones in my sig. :) I think they cover the important points: We are not this material body, we are eternal; God is everything; and the focus of life should be Him.

    I'll have to think about this.

    "All of the world is a narrow bridge; the most important thing is to not be afraid." - by Rabbi Nachman of Breslov

    IMO, everything Rebbe Nachman said was worthwhile - here's a link to a few: Nachman of Breslov - Wikiquote

    Hmmm....nothing sums up UUism like the principles, but this line from a hymn works okay for me:

    "From you I receive, to you I give, together we share, and by this we live."

    The following is the first line of "Unitarian Universalism draws from many sources":

    "Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;"

    If couldn't quote the principles, these two quotes would summarize well my life as a UU.
