Isaac Asimov
“I am an atheist, out and out. It took me a long time to say it. I've been an atheist for years and years, but somehow I felt it was intellectually unrespectable to say one was an atheist, because it assumed knowledge that one didn't have. Somehow, it was better to say one was a humanist or an agnostic. I finally decided that I'm a creature of emotion as well as of reason. Emotionally, I am an atheist. I don't have the evidence to prove that God doesn't exist, but I so strongly suspect he doesn't that I don't want to waste my time.”
Isaac Asimov

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“I am a humanist, which means, in part, that I have tried to behave decently without expectations of rewards or punishments after I am dead.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“The human body resonates at the same frequency as Mother Earth. So instead of only focusing on trying to save the earth, which operates in congruence to our vibrations, I think it is more important to be one with each other. If you really want to remedy the earth, we have to mend mankind. And to unite mankind, we heal the Earth. That is the only way. Mother Earth will exist with or without us. Yet if she is sick, it is because mankind is sick and separated. And if our vibrations are bad, she reacts to it, as do all living creatures.”

“I am not woke, I am not a feminist, I am not a freethinker - I am just human. I am human, that's why I prioritize rights over ritual - I am human, that's why I value conscience over custom - I am human, that's why I listen to the living rather than the dead.”

“Drunkenness of alcohol ruins life,
Drunkenness of scripture ruins society.
Drunkenness of ideology ruins the world,
Drunkenness of nationality ruins humanity.”
Abhijit Naskar, Vande Vasudhaivam: 100 Sonnets for Our Planetary Pueblo

Abhijit Naskar
“The problem is not that we believe in a lot of weird stuff, the problem is that often we end up confusing our belief with reality. Keep your belief if you need, no matter how illogical it is, but always be observant of your belief. Be the believer as well as the observer of the believer. In your mind be a child as well as the guardian of the child. Allow yourself some fantasy if it's not doing any harm, but never let it run amok.

Let me put it to you another way - a little bit of fantasy actually enhances your mental faculties. Which means, just like there is such a thing as too much fantasy, there is also such a thing as too much logic. Apply logic where logic is needed, permit fantasy where fantasy does good. Learn to be flexible, learn to be human.”
Abhijit Naskar, Visvavictor: Kanima Akiyor Kainat

“Sapionova, Sonnet 1195

They say, nobody is above the law,
I say, I am.
They say, nobody is above grammar,
I say, I am.

All are barred to break status quo,
Yet I do on a daily basis.
All are tamed to be rats without roar,
Yet I write my own moralities.

In a world run by do's and don'ts,
Wield your backbone and find your way.
Animals may need the crutch of custom,
By the feet of humans new roads are paved.

Question of should comes from principles,
It must never be a matter of convenience.
Sapient principles are living principles,
Not those inherited through dead lineage.

Sapiens is the question, sapiens is the answer.
When all live as neanderthal, be the sapionova.”

You are born to move the world,

Find a soul that seeks for others.

Yet those with eyes are lost in convenience.

“I don’t do publicity, I never will. My entire body of works thrives despite the absolute absence of publicity. I write in silence, I publish in silence, I continue the struggle in silence - in silence and alone. I don't have an industry to back me up - all I have is my dream - the dream of an undivided world.”
