"But if cattle or lions had hands, so as to paint with their hands and produce works of art as men do, they would paint their gods and give them bodies in form like their own, horses like horses, cattle like cattle."

Xenophanes

To the gods we mortals are all ignorant.Those old traditions from our ancestors, the ones we've had as long as time itself, no argument will ever overthrow, in spite of subtleties sharp minds invent.

"When I look upon seamen, men of science and philosophers, man is the wisest of all beings; when I look upon priests and prophets nothing is as contemptible as man."

"Most men are within a finger's breadth of being mad."

"The foundation of every state is the education of its youth."

"The mob is the mother of tyrants"

"I am called a dog because I fawn on those who give me anything, I yelp at those who refuse, and I set my teeth in rascals"

"Calumny is only the noise of madmen."


--Diogenes of Sinope (the Cynic), 412-323 BC

The god of war hates those who hesitate

Euripedes
