 TimeFavorites

We`re only getting older baby
And I`ve been thinking about it lately
Does it ever drive you crazy
Just how fast the night changes
Everything that you`ve ever dreamed of
Disappearing when you wake up
But there`s nothing to be afraid of...

I`m probably 20 percent atheist and 80 percent agnostic. I don`t think anyone really knows. You`ll either find out or not when you get there, until then there`s no point thinking about it.

Brad Pitt

Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while one is peeling potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes.

Alan Wilson Watts

Life`s short. Anything could happen, and it usually does, so there is no point in sitting around thinking about all the ifs, ands and buts.

Amy Winehouse

Believing something is not an accomplishment. I grew up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they`re really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy.

David Cain

Believers unhesitatingly attribute every good thing in the world to God - and then respond to bad things by saying, "God works in mysterious ways." If God`s ways are so mysterious, and we can`t begin to understand his thinking behind tsunamis and drought and pediatric cancer, then what makes you think you understand his intentions when it comes to pretty sunsets or cute puppies or helping you find the peanut butter?

When people are taught to let go of difficult questions and trust whatever religious authorities tell them? That it`s better to trust their feelings than their critical thinking skills? That evidence and reason are less important than faith? That "doubter" is a synonym for "sinner"? They become vulnerable to every cheater, chiseler, swindler, con artist, and late night infomercial huckster who` s lucky enough to cross their gullible paths.

Greta Christina

For a biologist the alternative to thinking in evolutionary terms is not to think at all.

Peter Medawar

You can`t do much carpentry with your bare hands and you can`t do much thinking with your bare brain.

Bo Dahlbom

The best grammar for thinking about the world is that of change, not of permanence. Not of being, but of becoming.

Carlo Rovelli

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

Carlo Rovelli

It is always the case, with mathematics, that a little direct experience of thinking over things on your own can provide a much deeper understanding than merely reading about them.

Roger Penrose

In the history of science, ever since the famous trial of Galileo, it has repeatedly been claimed that scientific truth cannot be reconciled with the religious interpretation of the world. Although I an now convinced that scientific truth is unassailable in its own field, I have never found it possible to dismiss the content of religious thinking as simply part of an outmoded phase in the consciousness of mankind, a part we shall have to give up from now on, Thus in the course of my life I have repeatedly been compelled to ponder on the relationship of these two regions of though, for I have never been able to doubt the reality of that to which they point.

Werner Heisenberg

You are not thinking. You are merely being logical.

Niels Bohr

Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.

Isaac Asimov
