Nah, wondering if I should give hints to these.

None required.

That's got Robert G. Ingersoll written all over it.

I just arrived at this thread ... read Girly's opener ... ooh, ooh, I know that one ... pick me, pick me ... damn! Beaten to it. So I went to the last one.

But yes, your "shadow on the moon" quote was also Robert Green Ingersoll quoting Megallan (maybe).

So talking of Full Circle, how about:

who Wrote:There is a vast immeasurable and impassable sea of ignorance between an uninformed opinion based solely on a wish and a prayer and an educated best-guess based on rational theories with plausible mechanisms of action informed by the evidence as presented by our current ability and technology to measure. The former is for children, the latter for adults. Chronological age notwithstanding.

Most people live in a myth and grow violently angry if anyone dares to tell them the truth about themselves.

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

I call your obscure quote and raise you, "Thinking begins only when we have come to know that reason, glorified for centuries, is the stiff-necked adversary of thought."

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