I have a few to bring to the thread...from those of varying infamy.

Quote:

When others asked the truth of me, I was convinced it was not the truth they wanted, but an illusion they could bear to live with.




Quote:

I see myself wrapped in lies, which do not seem to penetrate my soul, as if they are not really a part of me. They are like costumes.




- Anais Nin.

Quote:

There is no truth.
There is only you and what you make the truth.





- Bright Eyes.

Quote:

What does a scanner see? Into the head? Down into the heart? Does it see into me? Into us? Clearly or darkly? I hope it sees clearly because I can't any longer see into myself. I see only murk. I hope for everyone's sake the scanners do better, because if the scanner sees only darkly the way I do, then I'm cursed and cursed again.




- Phillip. K. Dick

Quote:

being 'sober' is not 'your real self'




- Noteworthy.



hm...you think there is a theme here?

A double-edged sword - "That which a man had rather were true, he more readily believes."

It's Rene Descartes from his book Meditations. Cogito Ergo Sum is better translated as "Consciousness therefore existence," though.

I dont think so, learningtofly.

cogito = 'i think'

egro = 'therefor'

sum = 'i am'

i think 'consciousness therefor existance' would be more like

Cogitare ergo esse

The opposite of the religious fanatic is not the fanatical atheist but the gentle cynic who cares not whether there is a god or not.
- Eric Hoffer


In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.
- Eric Hoffer


A war is not won if the defeated enemy has not been turned into a friend.
- Eric Hoffer


The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity.
- John Adams


The question before the human race is, whether the God of nature shall govern the world by his own laws, or whether priests and kings shall rule it by fictitious miracles.
- John Adams


Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.
- Francois Marie Arouet "Voltaire"


Faith is a cop-out. It is intellectual bankruptcy. If the only way you can accept an assertion is by faith, then you are conceding that it can't be taken on its own merits.
- Dan Barker, author and former evangelist


They came with a Bible and their religion- stole our land, crushed our spirit... and now tell us we should be thankful to the 'Lord' for being saved.
- Chief Pontiac, American Indian


I do not consider it an insult, but rather a compliment, to be called an agnostic. I do not pretend to know where many ignorant men are sure.
- Clarence Darrow


The mystery of the beginning of all things is insoluble by us, and I for one must be content to remain an agnostic.
- Charles Robert Darwin


Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise.
- James Madison


Theology: The effort to explain the unknowable in terms of the not worth knowing.
- H. L. Mencken


It is fear that first brought Gods into the world.
- Gallus Petronius, 1st Century Roman courtier


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.
- George Bernard Shaw


Truth in matters of religion is simply the opinion that has survived.
- Oscar Wilde


I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.
- Frank Lloyd Wright, American architect


--------------------

And as things fell apart,
Nobody paid much attention...

- David Byrne, '(Nothing But) Flowers' from the Talking Heads' album, 'Naked'

"Before Abraham was, I Am"


--------------------
“Strengthened by contemplation and study,
I will not fear my passions like a coward.
My body I will give to pleasures,
to diversions that I’ve dreamed of,
to the most daring erotic desires,
to the lustful impulses of my blood, without
any fear at all, for whenever I will—
and I will have the will, strengthened
as I’ll be with contemplation and study—
at the crucial moments I’ll recover
my spirit as was before: ascetic.”

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy;
For what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves;
We must die to one life before we can enter another.
