Thursday's Thoughts - Theme: Thankful/Grateful

     A lot of bloggers have weekly post trends varying from answering a survey, talking about their favorite song, sharing a recipe, etc. I haven't seen someone post quotes weekly, so maybe I'll be the first.

     I love quotes because they're honest about their author. They don't try to blindside me like religious literature does. Being an Atheist, I don't have a specific book that feeds me guidelines on how to be a good person. I don't believe people need instruction on how to act, because it's instinctual to know right from wrong about the basics of human interaction like murder, rape, etc. However, it's nice to have a little enlightenment every once in a while, and sometimes even inspiration.

     All quotes are written by someone—even quotes "authored" by ficticious characters—that was once living, breathing, experiencing, and speculating the things I am today. That's something I can believe in. Humanity.
