The End of Faith by Sam Harris
"Sam Harris is essential reading for those who fear the influence of religious fundamentalism in the world, particularly Islamic fanaticism, and is also an appeal to reason as the basis for ethics and treating our fellow human beings with respect a..." Read more of this review »

The Age of Reason by Thomas Paine
""Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demo..." Read more of this review »

Albert Ellis
“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.”
Albert Ellis

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Simone de Beauvoir
“And without a doubt it is more comfortable to endure blind bondage than to work for one's liberation; the dead, too, are better suited to the earth than the living.”
Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex

Albert Ellis
“If the Martians ever find out how human beings think, they'll kill themselves laughing.”
Albert Ellis

Albert Ellis
“For many years now I have had the quaint idea that all humans-yes, the whole six billion of them on this planet-are out of their fucking minds.”
Albert Ellis, The Road To Tolerance: The Philosophy Of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy
