One of the big reliefs for the atheist is not having to worry about what to hope, wish, and pray for. Did I want to pray for my mother`s suffering to end? Did I want to hope for her death? I didn`t have to worry about that. I could hope one day that she`d live longer so I could talk to her, and wish the next day that she would die and not have to suffer her paralysis and physical loss any longer. My wishing and hoping were inert; I could let them run wild. I could use them as pure solace.

Penn Jillette

It is far better to understand the Universe as it really is than to pretend to a Universe as we might wish it to be.

Carl Sagan

You can't just wish change; you have to live the change in order for it to become a reality.

Steve Maraboli

Christmas giving is something that people need to get out of the way, not something people wish they could do more of, if only they were richer. Christmas gift giving, pardon the metaphor, is a cross that we must bear.

Joel Waldfogel

At Christmas I no more desire a rose,
Than wish a snow in May`s new-fangled shows;
But like of each thing that in season grows.

William Shakespeare

I should wish to see a world in which education aimed at mental freedom rather than imprisoning the minds of the young in rigid armor of dogma calculated to protect them through life against the shafts of impartial evidence.

Bertrand Russell

I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true for if so the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my father, brother and almost all of my friends, will be everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable doctrine.

Charles Darwin

It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.

Giordano Bruno

What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the wish to find out, which is the exact opposite.

Bertrand Russell

A wise man will not leave the right to the mercy of chance, nor wish it to prevail through the power of the majority. There is but little virtue in the masses of men.

Henry David Thoreau

Goodnight big moon
Sweet dreams baby
If I could have one wish tonight
It would be
You always keep
Keep the starlight in your eyes.

Michelle Branch

There are moments when I wish I could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away, but I have the feeling that if I did, the joy would be gone as well. So I take the memories as they come, accepting them all, letting them guide me whenever I can.

Nicholas Sparks

Truth is nothing, what you believe to be true is everything. And the main thing that I used to believe was that I would be with you forever. [...] If I had one wish, it would be that your life brings you a taste of the happiness you have brought to me. That you can feel what it`s like to love.

Waiting for Forever (movie)

Growing up happens when you start having things you look back on and wish you could change.

Cassandra Clare

Sometimes I wish I could walk around with a HANDLE WITH CARE sign stuck to my forehead.
