We humanists celebrate humanity. We want humanity to survive. We recognize that if humanity does survive it will be only by its own efforts. Never can we sit back and wait for miracles to save us. Miracles don't happen. Sweat happens. Effort happens. Thought happens. And it is up to us humanists to help to expend our sweat, our effort, and our thought. Then there will be hope for the world."    ~ Isaac Asimov

"For some reason, the most vocal Christians among us never mention the Beatitudes (Matthew 5). But, often with tears in their eyes, they demand that the Ten Commandments be posted in public buildings. And of course, that's Moses, no Jesus. I haven't heard one of them demand that the Sermon on the Mount, the Beatitudes, be posed anywhere. 'Blessed are the merciful' in a courtroom? 'Blessed are the peacemakers' in the Pentagon? Give me a break!" ~ Kurt Vonnegut
