[Patience Never Wants Wonder To Enter The House: Because Wonder Is A Wretched Guest. It Uses All Of You But Is Not Careful With What Is Most Fragile Or Irreplaceable. If It Breaks You, It Shrugs And Moves On. Without Asking, Wonder Often Brings Along Dubious Friends: Doubt, Jealousy, Greed. Together They Take Over; Rearrange The Furniture In Every One Of Your Rooms For Their Own Comfort. They Speak Odd Languages But Make No Attempt To Translate For You. They Cook Strange Meals In Your Heart That Leave Odd Tastes And Smells. When They Finally Go Are You Happy Or Miserable? Patience Is Always Left Holding The Broom.]

Voltaires Quotes

"As a rule, theologians know nothing of this world, and far less of the next; but they have the power of stating the most absurd propositions with faces solemn as stupidity touched by fear.It is a part of their business to malign and vilify the Voltaires, Humes, Paines, Humboldts, Tyndalls, Haeckels, Darwins, Spencers, and Drapers, and to bow with uncovered heads before the murderers, adulterers, and persecutors of the world. They are, for the most part, engaged in poisoning the minds of the young, prejudicing children against science, teaching the astronomy and geology of the bible, and inducing all to desert the sublime standard of reason."
