Better Not Than If

Sometimes monkeys die.

The world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those that feel.

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
Epicurus

Many people would sooner die than think. In fact they do.
Bertrand Russell


Whenever morality is based on theology, whenever right is made dependent on divine authority, the most immoral, unjust, infamous things can be justified and established.
Ludwig Feuerbach


Destiny is what we work toward. The future hasnít happened yet. Fate is for losers.
Douglas Coupland


The world is so exquisite, with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence.

Carl Sagan


Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much... the wheel, New York, wars, and so on, whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely the dolphins believed themselves to be more intelligent than man for precisely the same reasons.
Douglas Adams


Religion is but a desperate attempt to find an escape from the truly dreadful situation in which we find ourselves. Here we are in this wholly fantastic universe with scarcely a clue as to whether our existence has any real significance. No wonder then that many people feel the need for some belief that gives them a sense of security, and no wonder that they become very angry with people like me who say that this is illusory.
Fred Hoyle

Edmund Burke

We are never so defenceless against suffering as when we love.
Sigmund Freud

Use your health, even to the point of wearing it out. That is what it is for. Spend all you have before you die; and do not outlive yourself.
George Bernard Shaw
