9780142181423: The Inspirational Atheist: Wise Words on the Wonder and Meaning of Life

A book of quotations on the meaning of life, the mysteries of the universe, love, freedom and the Big Questions, asked and answered without religion. It is a rationalist's celebration of life as articulated by the greatest scientists, philosophers, poets, and novelists throughout history. With French flaps and rough cut pages, THE INSPIRATIONAL ATHEIST is the gift book any atheist would be proud to give or get. The quotations collected bring together humanity's brightest bon mots on the subjects that all people, faithful or not, return to in times of stress and challenge: Beauty, Belief, Death, Freedom, Happiness, Life, Love, Morality and Mystery. It features quotations from a wide range of free thinkers, including Carl Sagan, D.H Lawrence, Julia Child, Douglas Adams, Charlotte Bronte, Bertrand Russell, Ralph Waldo Emerson, George Carlin, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Thomas Jefferson to name a few.

Book Description Plume, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Chicken Soup for the Soul-less More and more Americans--especially those under the age of thirty--consider themselves atheists. But being an atheist doesn't mean being indifferent to life's big questions. Like all people atheists contemplate issues of love, death, and morality, and in times of stress they long for solace and inspiration. Yet, no collection currently available speaks specifically to readers looking for words of wisdom outside of religion. Elegant and beautifully packaged, The Inspirational Atheist fills that gap with uplifting quotes from artists, poets, philosophers, and other great thinkers whose wisdom will touch nonbelievers and believers alike.
