 TimeFavorites

We all want happiness for our children, but they don`t have to be happy about everything all the time. Life must include sadness, and there`s peace and truth to be found in sadness. The best times are not always the happiest times, but the times spent in the flow, the times spent getting things done, the times spent living.

Penn Jillette

Penn Jillette

Living is a sickness to which sleep provides relief every sixteen hours. It`s a palliative. The remedy is death.

Nicolas Chamfort

It`s not sad to feel that life and the love of your real friends and family is more than enough to make life worth living. Isn`t it much sadder to feel that there is a more important love required than the love of the people who have chosen to spend their limited time with you?

Penn Jillette

Andy Rooney

It`s natural to think that living things must be the handiwork of a designer. But it was also natural to think that the sun went around the earth. Overcoming naive impressions to figure out how things really work is one of humanity`s highest callings.

Steven Pinker

Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand - and melting like a snowflake.

Francis Bacon

Imagine a world in which generations of human beings come to believe that certain films were made by God or that specific software was coded by him. Imagine a future in which millions of our descendants murder each other over rival interpretations of Star Wars or Windows 98. Could anything - anything - be more ridiculous? And yet, this would be no more ridiculous than the world we are living in.
