The top 10 most inspiring quotes by Sam Harris

  • Either God can do nothing to stop catastrophes like this, or he doesn’t care to, or he doesn’t exist. God is either impotent, evil, or imaginary. Take your pick, and choose wisely.
  • The problem with religion, because it’s been sheltered from criticism, is that it allows people to believe en masse what only idiots or lunatics could believe in isolation.
  • Consider it: every person you have ever met will suffer the loss of friends and family. All are going to lose everything they love in this world. Why would one want to be anything but kind to them in the meantime?
  • If someone doesn’t value evidence, what evidence are you going to provide that proves they should value evidence? If someone doesn’t value logic, what logical argument would you invoke to prove they should value logic?
  • You can do what you decide to do, but you cannot decide what you will decide to do.
  • Christians have abused, oppressed, enslaved, insulted, tormented, tortured, and killed people in the name of God for centuries, on the basis of a thelogically defensible reading of the Bible.
  • It is time that we admitted that faith is nothing more than the license religious people give one another to keep believing when reasons fail.
  • This is the true horror of religion. It allows perfectly decent and sane people to believe, by the billions, what only lunatics could believe on their own.
  • People who harbor strong convictions without evidence belong at the margins of our societies, not in our halls of power.
  • Almost all our suffering is the product of our thoughts. We spend nearly every moment of our lives lost in thought, and hostage to the character of those thoughts. You can break this spell, but it takes training just like it takes training to defend yourself against a physical assault.
