Christopher Hitchens Quote: “In the grip of a neurological disorder, I am fast losing control of words even as my relationship with the world has been reduced to them.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “I learned that to be amusing was not to be frivolous and that language – always the language – was the magic key as much to prose as to poetry.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “I could be spending time looking through a telescope or into a microscope and finding out the most extraordinary, wonderful things, but people say faith can move mountains. Faith in what, by the way? You haven’t said.”

Christopher Hitchens Quote: “No one can deny, in face of the evidence, that it is easy, given military power, to produce a population of fanatical lunatics.

Christopher Hitchens Quote: “If it ends in a belief that there is no God, you will find incitements to virtue in the comfort and pleasantness you feel in its exercise, and the love of others which it will procure you.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “On the other hand, and as if by way of compensation, religion teaches people to be extremely self-centered and conceited. It assures them that god cares for them individually, and it claims that the cosmos was created with them specifically in mind. This explains the supercilious expression on the faces of those who practice religion ostentatiously: pray excuse my modesty and humility but I happen to be busy on an errand for god.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “All the excitements of a prohibited book had their usual effect, one of which, as always, is to expose the fact that the censors don’t know what they are talking about.”

His response – which was that he was interested to see that the ladies had been looking them up – contains almost all that needs to be said on this point.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “The fact is: It’s true what they say about the United States. It is a land of opportunity. It is too various to get bored with it.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “I apply the Abraham Lincoln test for moral casuistry: ‘If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.’ Well, then, if waterboarding does not constitute torture, then there is no such thing as torture.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “To what faults do you feel most indulgent? To the ones that arise from urgent material needs.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “One can’t live without fear, it’s a question of what is your attitude towards fear? I’m afraid of a sordid death. I’m afraid that I will die in an ugly or squalid way, and cancer can be very vigorous in that respect.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “I have been taunting the Reaper into taking a free scythe in my direction and have now succumbed to something so predictable and banal that it bores even me.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “There are two clocks ticking in Iran. One is the democracy movement clock which is ticking now faster than it was but it’s got a lot of catching up to do. And then there’s the clock that’s ticking towards a nuclear weaponry.”
