Maryclare liked a quote
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
“The Savage interrupted him. "But isn't it natural to feel there's a God?"

"You might as well ask if it's natural to do up one's trousers with zippers," said the Controller sarcastically. "You remind me of another of those old fellows called Bradley. He defined philosophy as the finding of bad reason for what one believes by instinct. As if one believed anything by instinct! One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them. Finding bad reasons for what one believes for other bad reasons–that's philosophy. People believe in God because they've been conditioned to.”
Aldous Huxley

I would actually give it 3.5 stars and I feeling strongly enough about that to comment. Not quite four, but definitely deserves more than three.
