"The Humanist has a feeling of perfect at-homeness in the universe. He is conscious of himself as an Earth child. There is a mystic glow in this sense of belonging. Memories of his long ancestry still ring in muscle and nerve, in brain and germ cell. Rooted in millions of years of planetary history, he has a secure feeling of being at home, and a consciousness of pride and dignity as a bearer of the heritage of the ages and a growing creative center of cosmic life."

—  A. Eustace Haydon (former leader of the Humanist movement and a signer of the Humanist Manifesto in 1933)
