Here are some of my fav quotes:

"But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown."
-Carl Sagan

"For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring."
-Carl Sagan

"Sir, there is a distinct difference between having an open mind and having a hole in your head from which your brain leaks out."
-James Randi

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
- Mohandas Gandhi

When action grows unprofitable, gather information; when information grows unprofitable, sleep.
- Ursula K. Le Guin

To light a candle is to cast a shadow.
- Ursula K. Le Guin

It is above all by the imagination that we achieve perception and compassion and hope.
- Ursula K. Le Guin

Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
- George Orwell

Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past,
I will turn my inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
-Dune

Responsibility being the ability to respond, instead of the necessity to react
-Unknown

Thomas Jefferson

I do not find in orthodox Christianity one redeeming feature.
Thomas Jefferson
