Quotes

"It is not written in the stars that I will always understand what is going on - a truism I often find damnable annoying"

"('Religious' = 'absolute beliefe without proof.')"

"...the trouble with 'people's right to know' is that it strongly resembles the 'right' of someone to be a concert pianist - but who does not want to practice."

"All normal human beings have soi-disant mixed-up glands. The race is divided into two parts: those who know this and those who do not."

"Geniuses and supergeniuses always make their own rules on sex as on everything else; they do not accept the monkey customs of their lessers."

"A religion is sometime a source of happiness, and I would not deprive anyone of happiness. But it is a comfort appropriate for the weak, not for the strong. The great trouble with religion any religion is that a religionist, having accepted certain propositions by faith, cannot thereafter judge those propositions by evidence. One may bask at the warm fire of faith or choose to live in the bleak uncertainty of reason but one cannot have both."
