RE: Great quotes
This suits some of the recent convos around the forum Yes Heart

"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only once" - George R R Martin

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

"Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence!" -- Carl Sagan

Sagan was talking about extraterrestrial life, but I'm surprised more fundies don't conscript it against their war on atheists. ... Consider ... Probably because they never even heard of Carl Sagan

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus

I don't remember who pointed it out for me, but absence of evidence is evidence of absence when you would reasonably expect to find evidence.

RE: Great quotes
I liked this one so much, I thought it was sig-worthy.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime; give a man religion and he will die praying for a fish. ~ Anonymous

RE: Great quotes
David Thorne's reply to a chaplain's statement that there should be a balance of study between life and spirituality when he was trying to get David's son to go to a church play:

"I agree completely that balance is an important component of a child's education. I will assume then that you will also be organising a class excursion to a play depicting the fifteen billion year expansion of the universe from its initial particle soup moments following the big bang through to molecule coalescion, galaxy and planetary formation and eventually life?

Perhaps your church youth group could put together an interpretive dance routine representing the behaviour of Saturn's moon Hyperion, shattered by an ancient collision and falling randomly back together, tugged to and fro by the gravitational pull of Titan, sixteen sister moons, the multi-billionfold moonlets of Saturn’s rings, Saturn’s gravitational field, companion planets, the variability’s of Sol, stars, galaxy, neighbouring galaxies... or possibly not, according to an old saying, there is no beauty in this."
