If all morality comes from god, what does it mean to believe "god is good"? Wouldn`t that be a tautology? If Satan were to win the final battle (the spoiler says he doesn`t), defeat god, and become the most powerful force in the universe, wouldn`t he be our god? We`d meet the new boss, and he`d be the same as the old boss - good, by definition.

Penn Jillette

Whenever two people meet, there are really six people present. There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other person sees him, and each man as he really is.

William James

Chuck Palahniuk

It is true that those we meet can change us, sometimes so profoundly that we are not the same afterwards, even unto our names.

Yann Martel

I think to be a well-rounded person, you have to experience good and bad, wonderful moments and pain. You need to meet people who have no exposure to kindness, who lack any opportunity and have no way out - like the homeless, the mentally ill - and you`ve got to learn empathy for them.

Adrien Brody

Species evolve only to meet the pressures of new environments. In a stable environment, a species may remain unchanged for millions of Centuries. Primitive man evolved rapidly because his environment was a harsh and changing one. Once, however, mankind learned to create his own environment, he created a pleasant and stable one, so he just naturally stopped evolving.

Isaac Asimov

Every man I meet is my master in some point, and in that I learn of him.

Henry David Thoreau

If you`re not reading - with your heart as well as your brain - you will be one stupid grown-up. Even worse, you`ll be missing out on one of the best experiences you can possibly have. Nowhere will you meet more interesting people than in books. I`ve met a lot of people, I`ve read a lot of books, and that`s the absolute truth.

James Patterson

Two things may happen when we meet someone: either we become friends or we try to convince that person to accept our beliefs. The same thing happens when a hot coal meets another piece of coal: it either shares its fire with it or is overwhelmed by the other`s size and is extinguished.

Epictetus

One day you do meet a man who kisses you and you can`t breathe around it and you realize you don`t need air. Oxygen is trivial. Desire makes life happen. Makes it matter. Makes everything worth it. Desire is life. Hunger to see the next sunrise or sunset. To touch the one you love. To try again.

Karen Marie Moning

When two people meet, each one is changed by the other so you`ve got two new people.

Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something and has lost something.
