Religion is for those who are afraid of going to Hell. Spirituality is for those who have already been there.

Wow, that's really interesting. Thanks so much for providing the answers. It's really cool!

There's a dear little plant that grows in our Isle
Twas St . Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun of his labour with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the
Mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.
