Life is about breathing in then breathing out, the rest is psychological bullshit. ~ Malcolm Foster.

"I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can't generate. Life becomes stagnant." --Rufus, Dogma (1999) Granted it was about on how to approach faith, but it does have a freethinking tinge to it.


"I don't know what that says to you, but to me it says that following these faiths based on mythological figures ensures the destruction of one's inner being. Organized religion destroys who we are by inhibiting our actions, by inhibiting our decisions out of, out of fear of some, some intangible parent figure who, who shakes a finger at us from thousands of years ago and says, and says, "Do it... do it and I'll fuckin' spank you." --Loki, Dogma(1999)


"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored." -- Aldous Huxley


"He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; he that dares not reason is a slave." -- William Drummond


"An idea is a greater monument than a cathedral. And the advance of man's knowledge is a greater miracle than all the sticks turned to snakes or the parting of the waters." -- Harry Drummond, Inherit the Wind(1960)


"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken!" -- Colonel Sanders
