Fear and Rage - Quotes

He that increases knowledge increaseth sorrow.

the Bible

An apology for the devil: it must be remembered that we have only heard one side of the case. God has written all the books.

Samuel Butler

We may not pay Satan reverence, for that would be indiscreet, but we can at least respect his talents.

Mark Twain

To die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly. Death of one's own free choice, death at the proper time, with a clear head and with joyfulness, consummated in the midst of children and witnesses: so that an actual leave-taking is possible while he who is leaving is still there.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Expeditions of an Untimely Man

It's better to burn out than fade away.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse

Manic Street Preachers Biography

He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster... when you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss also gazes into you.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Jenseits von Gut und Bose IV 146

Wer mit Ungeheuern kampft, mag zusehn,
daß er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird.
Und wenn du lange in einen Abgrund blickst,
blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Jenseits von Gut und Bose IV 146

War is war. The only good human being is a dead one.

George Orwell
Animal Farm

Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals.

George Orwell
Animal Farm

I was lied to when I was told life was fair, that someone would always be there, people cared about how I felt, I was unhappy with the cards I was dealt. When I was a child, my castle was my home, now I'm walking empty streets, memories and me alone. More's been said in silence than can ever be spoken in words. Secrets shared, and promises kept, and feeling they'll never return.

Friedrich Nietzsche

All truth is simple... is that not doubly a lie?

Friedrich Nietzsche

But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.

George Orwell

I do not pretend to be able to prove that there is no God. I equally cannot prove that Satan is a fiction. The Christian god may exist; so may the gods of Olympus, or of ancient Egypt, or of Babylon. But no one of these hypotheses is more probable than any other: they lie outside the region of even probable knowledge, and therefore there is no reason to consider any of them.

Bertrand Russell

A Roman Catholic worships a god who speaks through the Pope, while a Baptist worships a god who does not. They cannot be worshipping the same god.

Judith Hayes

Judith Hayes
In God We Trust: But Which One?

We are not accountable for the sins of "Adam".

Robert G. Ingersoll

Martyrs have been sincere. And so have tyrants. Wise men have been sincere. And so have fools.

E. Haldeman-Julius
The Church Is a Burden, Not a Benefit, In Social Life

If there is a God, atheism must strike Him as less of an insult than religion.

Edmond and Jules de Goncourt

Eskimo: "If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?"
Priest: "No, not if you did not know."
Eskimo: "Then why did you tell me?"

Ruth Hermence Green
Women Without Superstition

Faith in God necessarily implies a lack of faith in humanity.

Barbara G. Walker
Women Without Superstition

One final snag in the "Bible only" view is this: the Bible itself teaches that moral truths are revealed outside the Scriptures.

C. Stephen Layman
The Shape of the Good: Christian Reflections on the Fondation of Ethics

It ain't the parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand.

Mark Twain

Don't unlock doors you're not prepared to go through.

The X-Files

Baldur's Gate

Hell lives a life of its own, losing itself never from its existence, loving those whom it hurts, hurting those whom it loves.

Why does man not see things? He is himself standing in the way: he conceals things.

Friedrich Nietzsche

What is new, however, is always evil, being that which wants to conquer and overthrow the old boundary markers and the old pieties; and only what is old is good. The good men are in all ages those who dig the old thoughts, digging deep and getting them to bear fruit - the farmers of the spirit. But eventually all land is depleted, and the ploughshare of evil must come again and again.

Friedrich Nietzsche
The Gay Science

We cannot tempt fate without eventually getting scorched by it.

Ana Veciana-Suarez

If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
speech, Detroit, Michigan, 23 June 1963

Cast your whole vote, not a piece of paper merely, but your whole influence. A minority is powerless when it conforms to a majority; but is irresistable when it clogs by its whole weight. If the alternative is to keep all just men in prison, or give up war and slavery, the State will not hesitate which to choose.

Henry David Thoreau

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.

Dalai Lama

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Friedrich Nietzsche

I always turn to the sports pages first, which records people's accomplishments. The front page has nothing but man's failures.

Chief Justice Earl Warren

Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.

Ernest Hemingway

Religion is the masterpiece of the art of animal training, for it trains people as to how they shall think.

Liberty is the possibility of doubting, the possibility of making a mistake, the possibility of searching and experimenting, the possibility of saying No to any authority - literary, artistic, philosophic, religious, social and even political.

Ignazio Silone
The God That Failed

Bergen Evans
The Natural History of Nonsense

Hope, like faith, is nothing if it is not courageous; it is nothing if it is not ridiculous.

Richard M. Nixon

Doubt is part of all religion. All the religious thinkers were doubters.

Isaac Bashevis Singer

All of us who are concerned for peace and triumph of reason and justice must be keenly aware how small an influence reason and honest good will exert upon events in the political field.

Albert Einstein

Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right.

Laurens Van der Post
The Lost World of the Kalahari
