Carl Sagan
“The idea that God is an oversized white male with a flowing beard, who sits in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow is ludicrous.

This God is emotionally unsatisfying... it does not make much sense to pray to the law of gravity.”
Carl Sagan

Annie Dillard
“There is no less holiness at this time- as you are reading this- than there was on the day the Red Sea parted, or that day in the 30th year, in the 4th month, on the 5th day of the month as Ezekiel was a captive by the river Cheban, when the heavens opened and he saw visions of god.

In any instant the bush may flare, your feet may rise, or you may see a bunch of souls in trees.”
Annie Dillard, For the Time Being

“Even though the discples were not aware of it, the presence was with them while they were reviewing the scriptures together on the road.

Karen Armstrong, The Spiral Staircase: My Climb Out of Darkness

Sherwin B. Nuland

“It is a shame that what happens today already happened yesterday, and will happen again tomorrow; it will continue to happen until the end of time, or until man finds out he is not only what he thinks, but mostly what he feels.

Although thoughts always remain the same, there is something stronger, and this is called Love.”
Paulo Coelho

Since then I am sitting here, by the side of my grave, and wondering, Was it the body whose satisfaction and survival made me so obsessed ? Was it the same entity for which I strived day and night? For whose entertainment , I wished to change the world order. And now I am seeing it decaying and rotting. I am just trying to search myself out of this decomposed matter.”
Junaid Raza
