Quotes About Zealots

"They dont understand that religion and science are there to serve different purposes. We need science to understand how everything on this planet and beyond works – us, nature, everything we see around us. Thats fact – no one with a working brain can question that. But we also need religion. Not for ridiculous counter-theories about things that science can prove. We need it for something else, to fill a different kind of need. The need for meaning. Its a basic need we have, as humans. And its a need thats beyond the realm of science. Your scientists dont understand that its a need they cant fulfill no matter how many Hadron colliders and Hubble telescopes they build- and your preachers don[t understand that their job is to help you discover a personal, inner sense of meaning and not behave like a bunch of zealots intent on converting the rest of the planet to their rigid, literalist view of how everyone should live their lives." - Author: Raymond Khoury

Quotes About Tipping

"Deep, dark unearthly black. I hadnt told anyone yet, but the color kept streaking across my mind at the oddest moments. When it did, my skin shivered pleasantly, and it was as if I could feel the color tracing a finger tenderly along my jaw, tipping my chin up to face it directly. I knew it was absurd to think a color would come to life, but once or twice, I was sure Id caught a flash of something more substantial behind the color. A pair of eyes. The way they studied me cut to the heart." - Author: Becca Fitzpatrick

"Bullish or bearish are terms used by people who do not engage in practicing uncertainty, like the television commentators, or those who have no experience in handling risk. Alas, investors and businesses are not paid in probabilities; they are paid in dollars. Accordingly, it is not how likely an event is to happen that matters, it is how much is made when it happens that should be the consideration." - Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
