Christopher Hitchens
“I suppose that one reason I have always detested religion is its sly tendency to insinuate the idea that the universe is designed with 'you' in mind or, even worse, that there is a divine plan into which one fits whether one knows it or not. This kind of modesty is too arrogant for me.”
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir

Christopher Hitchens
“Literature, not scripture, sustains the mind and—since there is no other metaphor—also the soul.”
Christopher Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens
“Here is the point about myself and my co-thinkers. Our belief is not a belief. Our principles are not a faith.
We do not hold our convictions dogmatically. We believe with certainty that an ethical life can be lived without religion. And we know for a fact that the corollary holds true - that religion has caused innumerate people not just to conduct themselves no better than others, but to award themselves permission to behave in ways that would make a brothel-keeper or an ethnic cleanser raise an eyebrow.”
Christopher Hitchens, God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

Martin Amis
“The first thing that distinguishes a writer is that he is most alive when alone.”
Martin Amis

“The best way to understand the soul of America is read Walt Whitman's poetry”
