The 'I think' which Kant said must be able to accompany all my objects, 
is the 'I breathe' which actually does accompany them.

Sunshine is delicious, 
rain is refreshing, 
wind braces us up, 
snow is exhilarating; 
there is really no such thing as bad weather, 
only different kinds of good weather.

furnished by nature 
and embroidered by imagination.

All action results from thought, 
so it is thoughts that matter.

Religion is part of the human make-up.
It's also part of our cultural and intellectual history. 
Religion was our first attempt at literature, 
the texts, 
our first attempt at cosmology, 
making sense of where we are in the universe, 
our first attempt at health care, 
believing in faith healing, 
our first attempt at philosophy.

A work of art is 
above all 
an adventure of the mind.

Do you not see 
how necessary a world of pains and troubles is 
to school an intelligence 
and make it a soul?

Hence poetry is something more philosophic and of graver import than history, 
since its statements are rather of the nature of universals, 
whereas those of history are singulars.

There is pleasure in the pathless woods, 
there is rapture in the lonely shore, 
there is society where none intrudes, 
by the deep sea, 
and music in its roar; 
I love not Man the less, 
but Nature more.

My atheism, 
like that of Spinoza, 
is true piety towards the universe 
and denies only gods fashioned by men 
in their own image, 
to be servants of their human interests.

It is wrong always, 
and for everyone, 
to believe anything 
upon insufficient evidence.
