Every passing hour brings the Solar System forty-three thousand miles closer to Globular Cluster M13 in Hercules--and still there are some misfits who insist that there is no such thing as progress.
The Universe is an awfully big place. There is room enough for an awful lot of people to be right about things and still not agree.
Everything that ever has been always will be, and everything that ever will be always has been.
The insane, on occasion, are not without their charms.
Unk, the big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe there is such a thing as being smart.
To that end, devoutly to be wished, I bring you word of a new religion that can be received enthusiastically in every corner of every Earthling heart.
National borders will disappear.
The lust for war will die.
All envy, all fear, all hate will die.
The name of the new religion is The Church of God the Utterly Indifferent.
The flag of that church will be blue and gold. These words will be written on that flag in gold letters on a blue field: Take Care of the People, and God Almighty Will Take Care of Himself.
The two chief teachings of this religion are these: Puny man can do nothing at all to help or please God Almighty, and Luck is not the hand of God.
I was a victim of a series of accidents, As are we all.
Luck, good or bad, is not the hand of God. Luck is the way the wind swirls and the dust settles eons after God has passed by.
The worst thing that could possibly happen to anybody would be to not be used for anything by anybody.
It took us that long to realize that a purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.
