Atheist Quote of the Week 21

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
~Albert Einstein

(Hey, why didn't anyone tell me I'd already used this one? Here's a bonus quote to make up for my ineptitude.)

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.
~Albert Einstein

  1. I just discovered your blog via those fabulous knit washcloths. LOVE them! I'll have to bookmark them for my next Geek Roundup. Einstein, Nintendo and knitting... I appear to have stumbled across an AWESOME space. Time to go explore.
