"Now now, dear man, this is not the time to be making enemies." (on his death bed when a priest asked him to 'renounce satan')

"Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd."

"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities."

"It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets."

"Chance is a word void of sense; nothing can exist without a cause."

"I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it."

"Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do."

"It is not more surprising to be born twice than once; everything in nature is resurrection."

"It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong."

"No snowflake in an avalanche ever felt responsible."

"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

"Common sense is not so common."
