The Quote Meme Thingy

My mouth is hurting me even though I'm on vicodin, amoxicillin and more ibuprofen than I'd mention in polite company. Even so, I still want to do the quote meme. I've seen one that indicated that the quotes are supposed to describe oneself, but others make no mention of that. What is consistent is that one is supposed to do five quotes. Of course, I found six I like. And the quote page the meme suggests you use is http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

I don't know if I'd exactly say the below quotes describe me, but my choice of them may say something about me. Make of that what you will. So, here we go.
Nature is not cruel, pitiless, indifferent. This is one of the hardest lessons for humans to learn. We cannot admit that things might be neither good nor evil, neither cruel nor kind, but simply callous -- indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose.
--Richard Dawkins, British ethologist, geneticist, & popularizer of genetics

Man is a credulous animal, and must believe something; in the absence of good grounds for belief, he will be satisfied with bad ones.
--Bertrand Russell, British author, mathematician, & philosopher (1872 - 1970)

Fervor is the weapon of choice for the impotent.
--Frantz Fanon

A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men.
--Roald Dahl, (Willy Wonka) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Last year I went fishing with Salvador Dali. He was using a dotted line. He caught every other fish.
--Steven Wright

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
--Aristotle
