I am a humanist, which means, in part, that I have tried to behave decently without any expectation of rewards or punishments after I`m dead.

Kurt Vonnegut

Lies beget other lies. Unlike statements of fact, which require no further work on our part, lies must be continually protected from collisions with reality. When you tell the truth, you have nothing to keep track of. The world itself becomes your memory, and if questions arise, you can always point others back to it.

Sam Harris

It is better to live in ignorance than with knowledge. Solving the problem is the exciting part, not knowing the answer. Once a conjuring trick is explained it loses its magic. The excitement of a game of football is in not knowing who is going to be the winner. Some people have success and rest on their laurels. The lucky ones continue to live in ignorance.

Paul Arden

The worst part is not the dying, it`s not knowing when or how.

George R. R. Martin

All men lie when they are afraid. Some tell many lies, some but a few. Some have only one great lie they tell so often they almost come to believe it... Though some small part of them will always know that it is still a lie, and that will show upon their faces.

George R. R. Martin

Most people spend the greatest part of their time working in order to live, and what little freedom remains so fills them with fear that they seek out any and every means to be rid of it.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Romantic love is not an emotion; it's a drive. It comes from the wanting part of the mind, the craving part.

Helen Fisher

Many of the greatest things man has achieved are not the result of consciously directed thought, and still less the product of a deliberately co-ordinated effort of many individuals, but of a process in which the individual plays a part which he can never fully understand.

Friedrich Hayek

Was there such a thing as an instinctive yearning on the part of intelligent beings to expand outward, to reach the stars, to leave the prison of gravity behind?

Isaac Asimov

All progress is based upon a universal innate desire on the part of every organism to live beyond its income.

Samuel Butler

The truth which makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear.

Herbert Agar

I would love to believe that when I die I will live again, that some thinking, feeling, remembering part of me will continue. But as much as I want to believe that, and despite the ancient and worldwide cultural traditions that assert an afterlife, I know of nothing to suggest that it is more than wishful thinking.

Carl Sagan

I was so scared to give up depression, fearing that somehow the worst part of me was actually all of me.

Elizabeth Wurtzel

I used to think that`s what love was: knowing someone so well he was like a part of you.

Lauren Oliver

What smells is decay. But when something starts decaying, it’s on its way to becoming a part of something new. And the new that’s created smells good. So it makes no difference whether something smells good or bad, it’s all just a part of life’s eternal round dance.

Janne Teller
