Quotation Of The Day

A place to post quotations that inspired you, made your day better, or made you pause and think.

I will be taking a reduced role at Atheist Nexus as of Oct 1, 2017.  I will not be moderating this group after that time, and I will be re-zeroing most of my groups and comments.

If there are quotations that you wish to save, I recommend that you save them now.

Since this is a popular group, I recommend that a member start up a new group for quotations, so that the members can continue adding and reading their favorite quotes.

Thanks and happy reading!

Loren,

Donald Trump thinking eh? I am sure you meant someone else....

Bertold, I'm far less "worn down" than I am PISSED OFF ... and if Orange Julius thinks his persistent bullshit will eventually force me into apathy, he can think again!

. . . This is how autocrats -- or would-be autocrats -- cement their power. They wear you down with their lies. They distract you. They want you to believe that 2 + 2 = 5. They want you to forget that freedom withers when the distinction between truth and falsehood dies.

--Roger Cohen, NYT

That's an excellent one, Loren. The implication is clear - no one can be a person of faith and be sane.

Comment by Loren Miller on August 24, 2017 at 7:14am

Religion doesn't just cloud our minds. It asks us to deliberately deceive ourselves – to replace reason with its opposite, faith. And when men operate on faith, they can no longer be reasoned with, which makes them more dangerous than any sane man, good or evil.
-- James L. Sutter

To which my own comment can be a resounding HEAR HEAR!!!

"The saddest thing for a girl to do is to dumb herself down for a guy."  (Emma Watson)

Very good article Bertold.

Good one, Daniel.  Here's another, same vein:

"The man who masters himself is delivered from the force that binds all creatures."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Most people would rather be certain they’re miserable, than risk being happy.

Dr. Robert Anthony
