Alfred North Whitehead

***************

Religion will not
regain its old power till
we pray to Science

***************

Abstinence is not
simplicity; abstinence
is the death of God

***************

Civilization
advances by extending
its distrust of art

***************

The human body
is an instrument for the
production of vice

***************

To make the past live
we must perceive it as the
eternal present

***************

There are billions of
molecules in the human
soul—they dance like fish

***************

Ninety percent of
life is pain; the rest is Christ
nailed to a cheap cross

***************

Immortality
is the everlasting search
for anesthesia

***************

Of what value is
the attainment of knowledge
if you have no mind?

***************

Solitariness
is a bagatelle; being
alone is pure zest

***************

Amid the flux, there
is something that survives: the
need for a large truck

***************

Put your brain in cold
storage; thinking is merely
abstract inference

***************
