Thomas Jefferson
“I have observed, indeed, generally, that while in protestant countries the defections from the Platonic Christianity of the priests is to Deism, in catholic countries they are to Atheism. Diderot, D'Alembert, D’Holbach, Condorcet, are known to have been among the most virtuous of men. Their virtue, then, must have had some other foundation than the love of God.

[Letter to Thomas Law, 13 June 1814]”
Thomas Jefferson, Letters of Thomas Jefferson

“Whenever I feel the need to exercise, I lie down until it goes away.”

Garrison Keillor
“Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car.”

“The man who does not do his own thinking is a slave, and is a traitor to himself and to his fellowmen.”
