Dwight D. Eisenhower:
In preparing for battle, I have found that planning is essential, but plans are useless.
A man who says, “If God is dead, nothing matters,” is a spoilt child who has never looked at his fellow men with compassion.
Robert Green Ingersoll:
This crime called blasphemy was invented by priests for the purpose of defending doctrines not able to take care of themselves.
Dan Christiansen, BYU Student:
As a child, it seemed so simple;
Every step was clearly marked.
Priesthood, mission, sweetheart, temple;
Bright with hope I soon embarked.
But now I have become a man,
And doubt the promise of the plan.
For the path is growing steeper,
And a slip could mean my death.
Plunging upward, ever deeper,
I can barely catch my breath.
Oh, where within this untamed wild
Is the star that led me as a child?
As I crest the shadowed mountain,
I embrace the endless sky;
The expanse of heaven’s fountain
Now unfolds before my eye.
A thousand stars shine on the land,
The chart drafted by my own hand.
Sam Harris said that the timing of when young Earth creationists claim God created the Universe:
… is, incidentally, about a thousand years after the Sumerians invented glue. [Link goes to The Onion]
Anger is a wind which blows out the lamp of the mind.
