RE: Great quotes
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

Nelson Mandela.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

RE: Great quotes
Here is one for our theist members. The good thing is that you can spin it in a more secular way (the original version wasn't specificly religious either).

«One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.»

Joan of Arc

Freedom is servitude to justice and intellectual honesty.

RE: Great quotes
"I don't believe humanity is fundamentally broken, we're just apes in pants and we act like it. Sometimes we groom each other and sometimes we tear each others faces off. Encouraging grooming and resisting tearing at faces is the daily, active struggle to be civilized. Some people don't bother to make as much effort as others (assuming civilization is automatic or natural, I guess), and occasionally even our best efforts go sideways. Welcome to life as an ape in pants."

--Sandra Craft

Don't let those gnomes and their illusions get you down. They're just gnomes and illusions.

--Jake the Dog, Adventure Time

RE: Great quotes
The universe has a much greater imagination than we do, which is why the real story of the universe is far more interesting than any of the fairy tales we have invented to describe it.

Lawrence Krauss.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
