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

Being an atheist means you have to realise that when you die, that really is it. You`ve got to make the most of what you`ve got here and spread as much influence as you can. I believe that you only live through the influence that you spread, whether that means having a kid or making music.

Matthew James Bellamy

Magic is not about having a puzzle to solve. It`s about creating a moment of awe and astonishment. And that can be a beautiful thing.

It is not long in historical terms since Christian priests were burning people at the stake if they did not believe that wine turns to blood when a priest prays over it, and that the earth sits immovably at the universe`s centre, or [...] since they were whipping people and slitting their noses and ears for having sex outside marriage [...]. To this day adulterers are stoned to death in certain Muslim countries; if the priests were still on top in the once-Christian world, who can say it would be different?

A. C. Grayling

I can`t really explain what it`s like to be in love, but I feel like it`s being comfortable. It`s almost like having a best friend. It`s a beautiful thing.

Ashton Irwin

It isn`t a crime not having friends. Being alone means you have fewer problems.

Whitney Houston

Any clod can have the facts, but having opinions is an art.

Charles McCabe

I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.

Claude Monet

I was having a bad day, and my friend said, "Go wash your hair." I thought it was really silly - but it made me feel so much better. It might be a small thing, but it works. Washing it off and starting over.

Kaley Cuoco

You might get one job for having a famous parent, but you won`t get your second unless you`re good.

Linus Roache

The problem with having a sense of humor is often that people you use it on aren`t in a very good mood.

Lou Holtz

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

People are like sheep: they follow the leader, It is the leader who has a point of view about which way they should go. Having an original point of view or angle is a novelty. Recognising its value is intelligent. Having the courage to stand up for it in tlie face of public opinion is what makes you a winner.

Paul Arden

Having too many ideas is not always a good thing. It’s too easy to move on to the next one, and the next one. If you don’t have many ideas, you have to make those you do have
work for you.

Paul Arden

Having ideas is not the same thing as being creative. Creation is execution, not inspiration. Many people have ideas; few take the steps to make the thing they imagine.
