“The only position that leaves me with no cognitive dissonance is atheism. It is not a creed. Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.”
~ Christopher Hitchens, in The Portable Atheist
Porque hoje quiseram as coincidências de mau gosto que não fosse só ele a partir, olhemos então para a vida, que nunca é longa o suficiente, e preocupemo-nos em vivê-la ao máximo.
