Pondering on death, with or without wine, enlightenment comes.

Welcome to my User page. I am your host, Postmodern Beatnik. Like many of the editors here, I have a great love of quotes and I plan on making sure that my favorites are included in the pages here (assuming they are appropriate for inclusion, of course). I am also concerned with correlating Wikipedia and Wikiquote pages, particularly those falling under the scope of WikiProject Philosophy.

Favorite Quotes[edit]

-Douglas Adams
  • Enough is abundance to the wise.

  • Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
-Siddhartha Gautama
