RE: Great quotes
A jealous lover of human liberty, deeming it the absolute condition of all that we admire and respect in humanity, I reverse the phrase of Voltaire, and say that, if God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish him.

Mikhail Bakunin.

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.

Mikhail Bakunin.

RE: Great quotes
"We shall have peace! We shall have peace, when you answer for the burning of the Westfold and the women and children who lie dead there! We shall have peace, when the lives of the soldiers whose bodies were hewn even as they lay dead before the gates of the Hornburg are avenged! When you swing from a gibbet for the amusement of your own crows---THEN we shall have peace!" (King Théoden to Saruman after the fall of Isengard) Thumbsup

RE: Great quotes
"Think of all the hate there is in Red China!
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama!
Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space,
But when your return, it's the same old place,
The poundin' of the drums, the pride and disgrace,
You can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace,
Hate your next door neighbor, but don't forget to say grace!"

RE: Great quotes
Our true Deity is Mechanism. It has subdued external Nature for us, and we think it will do all other things.We are Giants in physical power: in a deeper than metaphorical sense, we are Titans, that strive, by heaping mountain on mountain, to conquer Heaven also.

-Thomas Carlyle ""Signs of the Times""

Every religion is true one way or another. It is true when understood metaphorically. But when it gets stuck in its own metaphors, interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble. - Joseph Campbell
