When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indecent to object.

Milan Kundera


Tomas did not realize at the time that metaphors are dangerous. Metaphors are not to be trifled with. A single metaphor can give birth to love.

Milan Kundera


As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.

Goethe

Words are mere sound and smoke, dimming the heavenly light.

Goethe

Stephen Roberts
I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.

Blaise Pascal
Men never commit evil so fully and joyfuly as when they do it for religious convictions.

Doug McLeod
I still say a church steeple with a lightning rod on top shows a lack of confidence.

Seneca the Younger
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.

Emo Philips
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn’t work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

unknown
Don’t pray in my school, and I won’t think in your church.

Unknown
Philosophy is questions that may never be answered. Religion is answers that may never be questioned.

Bertrand Russell
And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence.

George Bernard Shaw
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.

Carl Sagan
You can’t convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it’s based on a deep-seated need to believe.

Dr Steven Weinberg
Religion is an insult to human dignity. Without it, you'd have good people doing good things, and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, it takes religion.

Hermann Hesse:

“I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.”

“There's no reality except the one contained within us. That's why so many people live an unreal life. They take images outside them for reality and never allow the world within them to assert itself.”

“Words do not express thoughts very well. They always become a little different immediately after they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish.”

“People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.”

“Every man is more than just himself; he also represents the unique, the very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world's phenomena intersect, only once in this way, and never again”

“Everything becomes a little different as soon as it is spoken out loud.”

aaaah...

Hesse.

One of the wisest men that ever bothered to write :D

"A woman has a close male friend. This means that he is probably interested in her, which is why he hangs around so much. She sees him strictly as a friend. This always starts out with, you're a great guy, but I don't like you in that way. This is roughly the equivalent for the guy of going to a job interview and the company saying, You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we're not going to hire you. We will, however, use your resume as the basis for comparison for all other applicants. But, we're going to hire somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic. And if he doesn't work out, we'll hire somebody else, but still not you. In fact, we will never hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the person that we hired."

-Uknown (well, to me at least)

"Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk everything, you risk even more."

Erica Jong

Heraklitus? - Nothing endures but change

Unknown - Don't judge a book by its cover

Woody Allen - Don't knock masturbation, it's sex with someone I love.

Kenny Everett - When England was a kingdom we had a king. When England was an empire we had an emperor. Now that we're a country, we have Margaret Thatcher.
This comment caused Kenny Everett to be fired yet again from radio

Don't put off until tomorrow what you can avoid doing altogether.

Yes I thought it was rather strange you implying that you lived by the original.

...Well, I'm an idiot.

Oh, I have another quote:
"Machines were mice and men were lions, once upon a time. But now that it's the opposite, it's twice upon a time." (WTF?!!) - Middle of the song Stamping Ground, by Louis Hardin (aka Moondog), featured in the movie The Big Lebowski. Have you seen that movie, Mittens? I think you may like it.
