Paganism stands for the religion that preceded Christianity, where one worships nature, essentially.

The term 'paganism' was extensively used in the fourth century to denote people who believed in polytheism. Though the word 'paganism' is seen in a bad light, the Pagan way of life still dominates the Earth through old and new religions.

When we come to modern-day paganism, it usually stands for a religious order that believes in magic and witchcraft. In truth, the core of paganism is about getting attuned with nature. Pagans believe in the power of nature and draw wisdom from the gods that surround them. Pagan inspirational quotes can show you a path towards spirituality. Hence, let us check out some great Pagan quotes.
