AQA GCSE RE Unit 4: Quotes (Christian & Muslim)

A bunch of quotes relevant to AQA GCSE RE Unit 4.

The quotes are all Christian or Muslim but I haven't labelled which is which. All the sources are given so it shouldn't be that difficult for you to work it out though.

If you want more context than just the quotes, look at the mindmaps (and factsheet for matters of life) I've done - this is just a list of the quotes from those.
