Meandering . . .

Today is the birthday of André Comte-Sponville (born March 12, 1952), philosopher.

"Atheism is a way of humility. It's to think oneself to be an animal, as we are actually and to allow oneself to become human." - Andre Comte-Sponville

"Your life is not lying in wait in the future like a wild animal or some ominous destiny. Nor is it hidden in the heavens, like a paradise or promise. Nor is it shut up in the cave or the prison of your past. It is here and now; it is what you live and what you do. At the heart of being; at the heart of the present; at the heart of everything – in the great current of life, of reality." - Andre Comte-Sponville

"All fear is imaginary, reality is its antidote." - Andre Comte-Sponville
