"If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed." - Albert Einstein.

"We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further." - Richard Dawkins.

"The happiest people I have known have been those who gave themselves no concern about their own souls, but did their uttermost to mitigate the miseries of others". - Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

"I am now convinced that children should not be subjected to the frightfulness of the Christian religion. If the concept of a father who plots to have his own son put to death is presented to children as beautiful and as worthy of society's admiration, what types of human behavior can be presented to them as reprehensible?" - Ruth Hurmence Green.

"As long as people believe in absurdities they will continue to commit atrocities". - Voltaire.

"If theism is loosely defined as belief in a higher power... then God is an atheist. He does not believe in a power higher than himself... Why, if God is himself an atheist, should we suppose that that he disapproves of atheism among his creatures? Is not a benevolent father pleased when his children grow up to be like him? And how can the Christian condemn atheism per se without also condemning their atheistic God? Is not the atheist who strives to be like God more admirable than the Christian who merely believes in him?" - George H. Smith.

"Happiness is not a reward - it is a consequence. Suffering is not a punishment - it is a result." - Robert Green Ingersoll.

"The word "spirit" comes from the Latin word "to breathe." What we breathe is air, which is certainly matter, however thin. Despite usage to the contrary, there is no necessary implication in the word "spiritual" that we are talking of anything other than matter (including the matter of which the brain is made), or anything outside the realm of science." - Carl Sagan.

"So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence; and in this respect ministers of religion follow gospel authority more closely than in some others." - Bertrand Russell.

"Faith is believing what you know ain't so." - Mark Twain.

"Who can over estimate the progress of the world if all the money wasted in superstition could be used to enlighten, elevate and civilize mankind?" - Robert Green Ingersoll.

"What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence." - Christopher Hitchens.

"I do not pretend to be able to prove that there is no God. I equally cannot prove that Satan is a fiction. The Christian God may exist; so may the Gods of Olympus, or of ancient Egypt, or of Babylon. But not one of these hypotheses is more probable than any other: they lie outside the region of even probable knowledge, and therefore there is no reason to consider any of them."- Bertrand Russell

"Why would a God create people so imperfect? And then blame them for his own imperfections? Then send his own son to be murdered by those imperfect people, to make up for how imperfect those people were? And how imperfect they were inevitably going to be? I mean, what a crazy idea." - Julia Sweeney.

"Tell a devout Christian that his wife is cheating on him, or that frozen yogurt can make a man invisible, and he is likely to require as much evidence as anyone else, and be persuaded only to the extent that you give it. Tell him that the book he keeps by his bed was written by an invisible deity who will punish him with fire for eternity if he fails to accept its every incredible claim about the universe, and he seems to require no evidence whatsoever." - Sam Harris.

"I do not feel obliged to believe that same God who endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect had intended for us to forgo their use." - Galileo Galilei.

"Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so." - Robert Green Ingersoll.

"The greatest contribution nonbelievers have made to the world has been the Constitution of the United States. Consider how very heretical to a religious world was the idea of a Constitution predicated on 'We, the People.' " - Queen Silver.
