“Thinkers of the Enlightenment, a set of new intellectual attitudes that remade Western culture in the 17th and 18th centuries, set out to understand the world and themselves through reason rather than religion. Their ideas led to massive advances in science, economics and commerce, the arts and human liberty, which underpin our present prosperity and social freedoms.”

“There is no such thing as an atheist philosophy. Atheism is simply the non-acceptance of claims that a deity exists. There is no creed to follow to be an atheist, no sacred truths, and no dogma. If you believe a god or gods exist you are a theist. If not you are an atheist. There is no other qualification required. Is that really so hard to understand?”

“I'm not greedy. I have love, blue skies, and Hallmark cards, and that has to be enough. It has to be enough, but it's everything in the world – and everything in the world is plenty for me. It seems just rude to beg the invisible for more.”
