James Frey
“If you care about what others think of you, then you will always be their slave.”
James Frey

Daniel C. Dennett
“If you can approach the world's complexities, both its glories and its horrors, with an attitude of humble curiosity, acknowledging that however deeply you have seen, you have only scratched the surface, you will find worlds within worlds, beauties you could not heretofore imagine, and your own mundane preoccupations will shrink to proper size, not all that important in the greater scheme of things.”
Daniel C. Dennett, Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon

David Hume
“In our reasonings concerning matter of fact, there are all imaginable degrees of assurance, from the highest certainty to the lowest species of moral evidence. A wise man, therefore, proportions his belief to the evidence.”
David Hume, An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding

Thomas Paine
“It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry.”
Thomas Paine

Carl Sagan
“We can judge our progress by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers, our willingness to embrace what is true rather than what feels good.”
Carl Sagan
