The purpose of literature is to turn blood into ink.
— T. S. Eliot

Just to add one more science quote

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust.

- Dr. Lawrence Krauss

It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.

- Albert Einstein

I believe the simplest explanation is, there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization that there probably is no heaven and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe and for that, I am extremely grateful.
― Stephen Hawking

Good Sam Harris quote and Sagan too, Loren.

That Native American Proverb is perfect, Joan!

“Preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.” - Carl Sagan

The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance.
― Carl Sagan

Seems to me I should probably start reading this Charles Pierce character.  He appears to have a better than average handle on things, which these days is in short supply.

The only conclusion I can draw from recent events is that the Fox News Channel was even more of a sewer backstage than it is on the air . . .

--Charles Pierce

We have a choice. We have two options as human beings. We have a choice between conversation and war. That's it. Conversation and violence. And faith is a conversation stopper.
― Sam Harris

I thought this made a rather powerful statement ... but then, I LIKE Sam Harris.
