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!

It's fascinating that H.R. McMaster and Dina Powell and Rex Tillerson, these very impressive people, all came out and denied that the president gave the Russians secret intelligence in the Oval Office. But, then, the next morning the president was like, "Yeah, I did tell the Russians!" So that's a sign to not get too hung up on what the White House is saying at any moment, because even their most credible people are being put forward to lie, bluntly, regularly . . . and it's OK!

Excellent thought David & Loren.

I don’t know [why we're here]. People sometimes say to me, ‘Why don’t you admit that the humming bird, the butterfly, the Bird of Paradise are proof of the wonderful things produced by Creation?’ And I always say, well, when you say that, you’ve also got to think of a little boy sitting on a river bank, like here, in West Africa, that’s got a little worm, a living organism, in his eye and boring through the eyeball and is slowly turning him blind. The Creator God that you believe in, presumably, also made that little worm. Now I personally find that difficult to accommodate…
― David Attenborough

R Thomas, as it comes to that, well-behaved ANYBODY, men or women, don't make history. It's the people that rock the boat that make it happen!

In a similar vein:

Man can't even create a worm, yet he creates gods by the dozens.

--Montaigne

That Ingersoll quote had me in stitches!

If God created us in his own image, we have more than reciprocated.
― Voltaire

Voltaire isn't the only one to have said so, but I do admire his brevity.

Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal.
-- John F. Kennedy

I can't help but notice but that the above quote appeared as a postscript in both The Missiles of October and Thirteen Days, two very well done retrospectives on the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.  It is one of the truest things JFK ever said, and something which 21st century politicians in the here and now could very much stand to recognize.
