We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creatures through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.

Henry Beston

Meaning can be found outside of religion, and seeking one`s own meaning in life can be far more fulfilling than following the rules of an outside religious authority.

Armin Navabi

The Internet is this whole new world that allows everyone to communicate and exchange information and be a perfect marketplace and just accelerate everybody`s lives. So, for me, the Internet was the greatest invention of mankind so far.

Kim Dotcom

Do something you really like, and hopefully it pays the rent. As far as I`m concerned, that`s success.

Tom Petty

Our world is more like chess than tic-tac-toe. We can never plan too far ahead; the number of possibilities available to us in our everyday life is too great to contemplate.

Henry Brighton

From the moment we are born we are presented with absolute facts rather than situated ones. We aren`t taught that distinctions such as young and old or healthy and unhealthy are social constructions and that their meaning depends on context. We are conditioned to learn about and see the world as a set of facts, such as 1 + 1 = 2. The world is far more subtle than such facts allow, and we should have learned that 1 + 1=2 only if we are using the base 10 number system, but that it equals 10 if the number system is base 2, and that 1 + 1 = 1 if we are adding one wad of chewing gum to one wad of chewing gum.

Ellen J. Langer

Living with different people is an absolutely necessary education for a right life as far as love is concerned.

Osho

Knowing how to think empowers you far beyond those who know only what to think.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence.

Bertrand Russell

For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You`d be surprised how far that gets you.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go its pretty damn good.

Woody Allen

The older golfer can hit the ball as far as the young one. He chips and putts equally well. And will probably have a better knowledge of the course. So why does he take the extra stroke that denies him victory? Experience. He knows the downside, what happens if it goes wrong, which makes him more cautious. The young player is either ignorant or reckless to caution. That is his edge. It is the same with all of us. Knowledge makes us play safe. The secret is to stay childish.

Paul Arden

A theory in science is a logical creation. It reflects the most accurate experimental observations and the best understanding of how the world works. Yet a scientific theory doesn’t necessarily represent absolute truth. It can only capture the state of our knowledge so far. There’s every chance that a new piece of evidence will come to light that disproves the theory, and sends the theoreticians back to the drawing board.

Paul Parsons

When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it`s not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.

Stephenie Meyer

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
