Louis C.K.
“It was a horrible process to get to this. It took me my whole life. If you’re new at this — and by 'new at it,' I mean 15 years in, or even 20 — you’re just starting to get traction...Give it a minute.”
Louis C.K.

Frans de Waal
“When we see a disciplined society, there is often a social hierarchy behind it. This hierarchy, which determines who can eat or mate first, is ultimately rooted in violence.”
Frans de Waal, The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates

John N. Gray
“Alone among the animals, humans seek meaning in their lives by killing and dying for the sake of nonsensical dreams.”
John Nicholas Gray, The Soul of the Marionette: A Short Inquiry into Human Freedom

John N. Gray
“Today’s Darwinists will tell you that the task of humanity is to take charge of evolution. But ‘humanity’ is only a name for a ragtag animal with no capacity to take charge of anything. By destabilizing the climate, it is making the planet less hospitable to human life. By developing new technologies of mass communication and warfare, it has set in motion processes of evolution that may end up displacing it.”
John N. Gray, The Soul of the Marionette: A Short Inquiry into Human Freedom

Frans de Waal
“Rather than reflecting an immutable human nature, morals are closely tied to the way we organize ourselves.”
Frans de Waal, The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates
