Secular people don`t believe in life after death, but rather, they believe in life before death.

Phil Zuckerman

You need to love yourself and be yourself one hundred percent before you can actually love someone else.

Christina Perri

Doubt your doubts before you doubt your beliefs.

Chace Crawford

Our fear of death seems to me to be an error of evolution. Many animals react instinctively with terror and flight at the approach of a predator. It is a healthy reaction, one that allows them to escape from danger. But it`s a terror that lasts an instant, not something that remains with them constantly. Natural selection has produced these big apes with hypertrophic frontal lobes, with an exaggerated ability to predict the future. It`s a prerogative that`s certainly useful but one that has placed before us a vision of our inevitable death, and this triggers the instinct of terror and flight. Basically, I believe that the fear of death is the result of an accidental and clumsy interference between two distinct evolutionary pressures - the product of bad automatic connections in our brain rather than something that has any use or meaning.

Carlo Rovelli

The ability to understand something before it`s observed is at the heart of scientific thinking.

Carlo Rovelli

Carlo Rovelli

It`s better to be bold than meek. [...] If you jump off a cliff at least you`ll fly before you fall.

Kristin Hannah

There was a time when the newspapers said that only twelve men understood the theory of relativity. I do not believe there ever was such a time. There might have been a time when only one man did, because he was the only guy who caught on, before he wrote his paper. But after people read the paper a lot of people understood the theory of relativity in some way or other, certainly more than twelve. On the other hand, I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics.

Richard Feynman

You have to die a few times before you can really live.

Charles Bukowski

Mirrors should think longer before they reflect.

Jean Cocteau

Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first, it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident.

Arthur Schopenhauer

Doing what has never been done before is intellectually seductive, whether or not we deem it practical.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

All those good things you`ve done before are nice, but the future can be even better. Focus on that.

Chris Guillebeau

Too many people spend too much time trying to perfect something before they actually do it. Instead of waiting for perfection, run with what you’ve got, and fix it as you go.
