Be the change you want to see in the world
My glass is ALWAYS half empty !!.. and don't you DARE try fill it !!
The purpose of life is a life of purpose.
Philosophy is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat.
Metaphysics is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn't there.
Theology is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn't there and shouting “I found it!”
Religion is comparable to a childhood neurosis.
Forgive, O Lord, my little joke on Thee and I'll forgive Thy great big one on me.
The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason.
I do not believe in the immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern with no superhuman authority behind it.
I have never seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious theories of heaven and hell, of future life for individuals, or of a personal God.
"A believer is not a thinker and a thinker is not a believer." - Marian Noel Sherman
I don't believe in the after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.
- Woody Allen
Fear is the parent of cruelty, therefore it is no wonder if religion and cruelty have gone hand-in-hand.
The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one.
-George Bernard Shaw
I don't think we're here for anything, we're just products of evolution. You can say 'Gee, your life must be pretty bleak if you don't think there's a purpose' but I'm anticipating a good lunch.
-Dr. James Watson
There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.
- Mahatma Gandhi
