Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

Marcus Aurelius

The great moral questions of the present age are those about human rights, war, poverty, the vast disparities between rich and poor, the fact that somewhere in the third world a child dies every two and a half seconds because of starvation or remediable disease. The churches` obsessions over pre-marital sex and whether divorced couples can remarry in church appears contemptible in the light of this mountain of human suffering and need. By distracting attention from what really counts, and focusing it on the minor and anyway futile attempt to get people to conduct their personal lives only in ways the church permits, harm is done to the cause of good in the world.

A. C. Grayling

No matter how unlikely an event is, it doesn`t mean that a supernatural explanation would be more likely, especially when you consider the fact that in order for us to accept such an explanation, we have to agree that scientific models of nature that have consistently and accurately explained and predicted many natural events are completely wrong simply because we have witnessed an unlikely event.

Armin Navabi

Johnnie Cochran

The fact that something has not happened doesn`t mean it cannot happen; it only means that the way to make it happen is as yet unknown.

Ellen J. Langer

Reality is often very different from what it seems. The Earth appears to be flat but is in fact spherical. The sun seems to revolve in the sky when it is really we who are spinning.

Carlo Rovelli

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

Nelson Mandela

No amount of belief makes something a fact.

James Randi

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

The fact that our task is exactly commensurate with our life gives it the appearance of being infinite.

Franz Kafka

Some morning while you`re eating breakfast and you need something new to think about, though, you might want to ponder the fact that you see your kids across the table not as they are but as they once were, about three nanoseconds ago.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Everytime you make me angry
think I could just walk away
why I have to stay with you and
why I can`t you throw away.
Despite the fact you drive me crazy
I simply realize
I can`t live my life without you
I wanna make you mine.

ByTheWay

Because personalized filters usually have no Zoom Out function, it's easy to lose your bearings, to believe the world is a narrow island when in fact it's an immense, varied continent.

Eli Pariser

How many times have you heard that "more is better, " "fake it ‘til you make it, " or "clothes make the man?" They tell us that more stuff means more happiness, when in fact, more stuff often means more headaches and more debt.

Francine Jay

The whole point of faith, in fact, is to believe regardless of the evidence, which is the very antithesis of science.
