As children we’re taught to do unto others as we would want done unto ourselves. That Golden Rule is even more important to me, as an atheist. We’re all in this together, with only ourselves to hold onto, so when you have the opportunity to perform an act of compassion for another human being — do it. You’ll never look back and regret being kind, when your life is almost over.

In social issues class today our professor held up a black book and was like “this book is red” and we were all “no” and he said “yes it is” and we were just all “that’s not right” and he turned it around and the back cover was red and he said “Don’t tell somebody they’re wrong until you’ve seen things from their point of view” 

that speaks to me

"You’re an interesting species. An interesting mix. You’re capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you’re not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we’ve found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other."

—  Carl Sagan (via wryer)
