I have another quote to share this week. It’s been all over the place – the earliest reference I can find to it is in the 1932 movie “The Mummy” – and it was used again in the updated remake with Tom Cruise last year. In the latter movie, it was attributed as being an Egyptian Prayer of Resurrection, but I can’t find independent confirmation of that.
“Death is but the doorway to new life. We live today, we shall live again. In many forms we shall return.”
Today, I want to share a quote I got from a video game character, which I think needs to be impressed on every person who is intolerant of beliefs that conflict with their own.
“Faith is of the heart, not the head. When the heart is ungoverned by reason, charlatans have powerful tools to deceive.” — Sister Justinia, a non-player character in the video game Dragon Age: Origins.
The prime definition of faith is that it is a belief in something that can’t be proved – so it isn’t a fact. Nobody’s opinion (or faith) is better than anyone else’s, no matter why you choose to place your faith in it. And the beliefs of any religion should never guide governments in passing laws that put other faiths outside of the law.
Thanks to my wife for finding this one!
Today I’m going to do something totally unique – because today I become a highway speed limit sign!
Hahahaha – but, seriously, Today is my 55th birthday.
A humorous warning to all politicians:
