  • Without strong beliefs to anchor us during troubled times, we will find it difficult to navigate through life; instead we will be tossed about by the winds of desire and the waves of fear that are certain to overtake us.


  • Diversity of opinion is essential for any society to grow and adapt to the future; the alternative is the inbreeding of opinions that weakens and produces distorted entities coalescing towards extinction.


  • To say only that we need something, is meaningless; it is like saying that a smile exists without a face. Unless it is said that something is needed, in order to do or have something, need has no face.


  • Some become so attached to certain myths, that no amount of reason could ever crowbar them apart.


  • We can commit with our mouths what we deny with our minds.


  • We are not born with obligations. Although many may try, others cannot confer us with our obligations; obligations must grow within us, otherwise they are merely on loan from others and are not our own.


  • Undoubtedly there are many obscure truths that we may sense but never verify; but we more often sense that which is not true but is only hoped for.


  • A principle that is violated is seldom made whole again.


  • To be rejected for one’s beliefs, reveals more fault in those that reject than in the believer.


  • All of our beliefs, no matter how well founded, should be held only as hypotheses for the moment.


  • Violence, when used against those that have different beliefs, acts like a smelter and forge that turns bits of iron into a sword.


  • Many of our solutions for today’s problems are really solutions for problems yet to be discovered.


  • Without knowing what the future may bring, we need to always be prepared to become prepared.


  • When hearing the scream that: “The sky is falling!.”, disbelieve, but give the sky a glance anyway.


  • Is it a form of plagiarism when we take the beliefs of another and claim them as our own?


  • One head is better than two when owned by one.


  • The Milky Way Galaxy is but a tiny speck in the Universe; the Solar System is but a tiny speck in the Milky Way; the Earth is but a tiny speck in the Solar System, and we are but a tiny speck on the Earth. Therefore each of us is only a tiny speck, which is on a tiny speck, which is on a tiny speck, which is on a tiny speck that is only a tiny speck within the Universe. To imagine that an individual, or even all of mankind, is significant in the Universe is wish fulfillment and delusional in the extreme.
