    the quote is from a book called angels and demons;
    science and religion are not at odds, science is simply too young to understand.

    This guy's walking down the street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can't get out.
    A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up. "Hey you! Can you help me out?"
    The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole and moves on.
    Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up. "Father, I'm down in this hole. Can you help me out?"
    The priest writes out a prayer, throws in down in the hole, and moves on.
    Then a friend walks by. "Hey Joe, it's me! Can you help me out?"
    And the friend jumps in the hole.
    Our guy says "Are you stupid? Now we're both down here!"
    The friend says "Yeah, but I've been down here before and I know the way out."

    As I say, I've got loads more where these come from!

    Two more great quotes.
    Haha, I'll hold you to that nucdev but I have no doubt in you you've already made such a phenomenal contribution to this thread. thank you.
    Noory I have to agree with you. I am religious and I do like the perspective of that quote. I don't really post many religious quotes because I appreciate that some people aren't religious but I really liked that.

    That combined with "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" is why I love science so much.

    But we cannot generalise this story and think that every priest and doctor is bad. yet friends will back us more than anyone else won't

    Aah well, if we're also going to include religious ones, then a semi-religious quote:

    “Be not afraid of anything. You will do marvellous work. It is fear that is the great cause of misery in the world. It is fear that is the greatest of all superstitions.
    It is fear that is the cause of all our woes, and it is fearlessness that brings heaven even in a moment.
    Therefore, "Arise, Awake and stop not until the goal is reached.”

    I absolutely love this. At first, I was thinking: hey, this is a bit like The Good Samaritan. Then I read the ending at it is just the perfect last line.

    sooo much!

    Hi, thanks so much for posting this. I always think about this too, but I've never seen the quote before. That has already become one of my favourite personal quotes. Thanks so much again!

    My favourite is from Sierra Boggess, a musical theatre performer. In a world where so many people suffer from mental health problems and feel like a failure because of the society we live in, this one speaks volumes to me:

    'You are enough. You are so enough it's unbelievable how enough you are'.

    I also like:

    'If you have the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind'
