Christopher Hitchens
“Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the 'transcendent' and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity.

Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you.”
Christopher Hitchens

Bertrand Russell
