Sam Harris Quote: “If you are perpetually angry, depressed, confused, and unloving, or your attention is elsewhere, it won’t matter how successful you become or who is in your life – you won’t enjoy any of it.”
Sam Harris Quote: “Religious moderation is the product of secular knowledge and scriptural ignorance.”
Sam Harris Quote: “Lying is, almost by definition, a refusal to cooperate with others. It condenses a lack of trust and trustworthiness into a single act. It is both a failure of understanding and an unwillingness to be understood. To lie is to recoil from relationship.”
Sam Harris Quote: “Islam, at the moment, is the motherlode of bad ideas.”
Sam Harris Quote: “The atheist, by merely being in touch with reality, appears shamefully out of touch with the fantasy life of his neighbors.”

Sam Harris Quote: “The position of the Muslim community in the face of all provocations seems to be: Islam is a religion of peace, and if you say that it isn’t, we will kill you.”

Sam Harris Quote: “The president of the United States has claimed, on more than one occasion, to be in dialogue with God. If he said that he was talking to God through his hairdryer, this would precipitate a national emergency. I fail to see how the addition of a hairdryer makes the claim more ridiculous or offensive.”
