Jokes of the proper kind, properly told, can do more to enlighten questions of politics, philosophy, and literature than any number of dull arguments.



 Marcus Aurelius

Philosopher and Writer

If there are gods and they are just, 

they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.  

 

If there are gods, but unjust,

then you should not want to worship them.


If there are no gods,

 then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.
