Imagine a world in which generations of human beings come to believe that certain films were made by God or that specific software was coded by him. Imagine a future in which millions of our descendants murder each other over rival interpretations of Star Wars or Windows 98. Could anything --anything -- be more ridiculous? And yet, this would be no more ridiculous than the world we are living in.
Sam Harris, author (1967- )
A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged, it is the skin of a living thought and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and the time in which it is used.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., jurist (1841-1935)
Man is the head of the family, woman the neck that turns the head.
It is an ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way.
Rollo May, psychologist (1909-1994)
Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone.
Gladys Browyn Stern, writer (1890-1973)
