  • I like it: it reminds me of this quotation from the Buddha:
    "Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
    Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
    Do not believe in anything because it is spoken and rumored by many.
    Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
    Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
    But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason, and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."

    A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything. ~FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE

  • I thought some of you guys would eat this up; I am disappointed. LOL.


    I was just reviewing some quotes from Nietzsche as I was looking through some post modern literature. Looking through some of the books and stories, I feel like I am the one walking down the hall of an insane asylum. LOL


    It is amazing how much his ideas have influenced modern thinking. Back then, he was very controversial; today . . . not so much.
