RE: Great quotes
Theodorus the Cyrenean was allegedly an ancient atheist. When he offended some ruler, Theodorus was threatened with (what else?) crucifixion. Theodorus presumably did not believe in an afterlife, and bravely responded:
“To Theodorus it makes no difference whether he rot in the air or underground.”

RE: Great quotes
"I am not even an atheist so much as I am an antitheist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief is positively harmful. Reviewing the false claims of religion, I do not wish, as some sentimental materialists affect to wish, that they were true. I do not envy believers their faith. I am relieved to think that the whole story is a sinister fairy tale; life would be miserable if what the faithful affirmed was actually the case." (Christopher Hitchens) Consider
