images-1“The atheist does not say and cannot prove that there is no deity. He or she says that no persuasive evidence or argument has ever been adduced for the notion. Surely this should place the burden on the faithful, who do after all make very large claims for themselves and their religions.”

Christopher Hitchens

Oliver Sacks in 2009 at Columbia University“Individuality is deeply imbued in us from the very start, at the neuronal level . . . We are destined, whether we wish it or not, to a life of particularity and self-development, to make our own individual paths through life.”

Oliver Sacks, 1933 – 2015

images-3“I think we are born into this world and inherit all the grudges and rivalries and hatreds and sins of the past. But we also inherit the beauty and the joy and goodness of our forebears. And we’re on this planet a pretty short time, so that we cannot remake the world entirely during this little stretch that we have. But I think our decisions matter. At the end of the day, we’re part of a long-running story. We just try to get our paragraph right.”

President Barack Obama
