These quotes are some of the most brilliant I've heard put together. Wanted to also say that I enjoyed the Mozart violin concerto while scoping out some of your posts, groovy stuff!

Love it!

Thanks! Some really good ones in here. Must admit I don't like the antitheist ones so much. They're not inspiring, they're just feeding the polarity between groups of religious/spiritual and atheist (or more (a)gnostic) groups. :-\
