How to use pagan in a sentence?

  1. Albert Camus:

    Everyone would like to behave like a pagan, with everyone else behaving like a Christian.

  2. George Gordon Byron:

    There is something Pagan in me that I cannot shake off. In short, I deny nothing, but doubt everything.

  3. Leatrice Eiseman:

    This belief started in ancient times, as it was seen as the color reflective of love, both earthly and heavenly. Greek muses wore orange, as did Bacchus, the pagan Roman god, in general terms, a color ascribed to a god perpetuated the hope and belief of immortality.

  4. Colin Campbell:

    Indeed, the Founders mentioned the pagan authors in so many heartfelt speeches, pamphlets and letters that today's sweeping references to America's 'Christian' roots and 'Judeo-Christian heritage' ought to be amended. Maybe these terms should be reserved to explain the traditional religions and morality of individuals, families, congregations, small communitities. Politically, our notions of virtue and vice have had another genesis.

  5. Lenny Bruce:

    Now a Jew, in the dictionary, is one who is descended from the ancient tribes of Judea, or one who is regarded as descended from that tribe. That's what it says in the dictionary; but you and I know what a Jew is -- One Who Killed Our Lord. And although there should be a statute of limitations for that crime, it seems that those who neither have the actions nor the gait of Christians, pagan or not, will bust us out, unrelenting dues, for another deuce.
