Sir Richard Francis Burton
The more I study religions the more I am convinced that man never worshipped anything but himself.
Do what thy manhood bids thee do, from none but self expect applause; He noblest lives and noblest dies who makes and keeps his self-made laws.
All Faith is false, all Faith is true:Truth is the shattered mirror strownIn myriad bits; while each believesHis little bit the whole to own.
Conquer thyself, till thou has done this, thou art but a slave; for it is almost as well to be subjected to another's appetite as to thine own.
