There is no fate that plans men`s lives. Whatever comes to us, good or bad, is usually the result of our own action or lack of action.

Herbert Casson

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

People are told that they are inherently bad or sinful and that the only way to become good is by giving over control of their lives to faith. As there is no evidence that any of that is true, religion, in effect, is creating an imaginary problem simply so that it can sell an imaginary solution.

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

We`re not doing brain surgery. We`re not saving lives... Even if you`re doing Shakespeare, it`s still entertainment. We`re just entertaining people. We`re just doing the stuff that comes on in between the ads.

If you take yourself lightly and don`t take yourself too seriously, pretty soon you can find the humor in our everyday lives. And sometimes it can be a lifesaver.

Betty White

I feel like I`m in the wrong world. Cause I don`t belong in a world where we don`t end up together. I don`t. There are parallel universes out there where this didn`t happen. Where I was with you, and you were with me. And whatever universe that is that`s the one where my heart lives in.

Comet (movie)

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

We spend the first twelve months of our children`s lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve telling them to sit down and shut up.

Phyllis Diller

We are free to interpret and reinterpret the meaning of our lives. You can consider your first marriage, which ended in divorce, to be a "failure," or you can view it as a circumstance that caused you to grow in ways that were crucial to your future happiness.

Sam Harris

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

Oscar Wilde

Through want of enterprise and faith men are where they are, buying and selling, and spending their lives like serfs.

Henry David Thoreau

Democracy works only if we citizens are capable of thinking beyond our narrow self-interest. But to do so, we need a shared view of the world we cohabit. We need to come into contact with other peoples' lives and needs and desires. The filter bubble pushes us in the opposite direction - it creates the impression that our narrow self-interest is all that exists. And while this is great for getting people to shop online, it’s not great for getting people to make better decisions together.

Eli Pariser

If the sweetness of our lives did not depart, there would be no sweetness at all.

Stephen King

The stories we hear in childhood are the ones we remember all our lives.

Stephen King
