Religion, like poetry, is simply a concerted effort to deny the most obvious realities.

Henry Louis Mencken

When you`re reading or skimming argumentative essays, especially by philosophers, here is a quick trick that may save you much time and effort, especially in this age of simple searching by computer: look for "surely" in the document, and check each occurrence. Not always, not even most of the time, but often the word "surely" is as good as a blinking light locating a weak point in the argument.

Daniel Dennett

Truth needs great effort, discovery, risk, and to walk alone on a path which nobody has traveled before.

Osho

All the effort in the world won`t matter if you`re not inspired.

Chuck Palahniuk

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Herm Albright

A great thing can only be done by a great man, and he does it without effort.

John Ruskin
