Favorite Quotes about Atheism, Agnosticism, And Religion
“The doctrine that future happiness depends upon belief is monstrous. It is the infamy of infamies. The notion that faith in Christ is to be rewarded by an eternity of bliss, while a dependence upon reason, observation and experience merits everlasting pain, is too absurd for refutation, and can be relieved only by that unhappy mixture of insanity and ignorance, called 'faith.” (Robert G. Ingersoll)
“I expect to pass this way but once; any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” (Etienne De Grellet)

It is ironic that Buck's parents where Christian missionaries of the Presbyterian persuasion. To their credit, they strictly taught that the Chinese were our equals, refusing to label them "heathen" as was common in early 20th century Christianity. Nevertheless the missionary boarding school she attended in China as a child was rife with racist attitudes and one has to have admiration for Buck in that she did not succumb to it but, indeed, went rather far beyond her parents and supported many causes that did not see the light of day in the general public until modern times.

Sadly, she fell under the spell of a Svengali in her later years and unwisely entrusted her affairs to him. Only after her death was her family able to wrest control from him.

“I am an atheist...I regard religion with fear and suspicion. It’s not enough to say that I don’t believe in God. I actually regard the system as distressing: I am offended by some of the things said in the Bible and the Qur’an, and I refute them.” (Emma Thompson)  Consider
“I expect to pass this way but once; any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” (Etienne De Grellet)
