Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The gods had condemned Sisyphus to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone would fall back of its own weight. They had thought with some reason that there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor.
It is folly for a man to pray to the gods for that which he has the power to obtain by himself.
Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don't find out til too late that he's been playing with two queens all along.
I talk about the gods, I am an atheist. But I am an artist too, and therefore a liar. Distrust everything I say. I am telling the truth.
Ursula K. Le Guin

Thomas Babington Macaulay

For this is the mark of a wise and upright man, not to rail against the gods in misfortune.
Whether gods exist or not, there is no way to get absolute certainty about ethics. Without absolute certainty, what do we do? We do the best we can.

All the lessons of history in four sentences: Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad with power. The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly small. The bee fertilizes the flower it robs. When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
Charles A. Beard

Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
