A Quote by sam harris on ritual, reality, belief, religion, and faith

Clearly, it is time we learned to meet our emotional needs without embracing the preposterous. We must find ways to invoke the power of ritual and to mark those transitions in every human life that demand profundity--birth, marriage, dearth--without lying to our selves about the nature of reality.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on habit, addiction, ritual, highlight, candy, food, decadence, civilization, fruitless, deprivation, cult, rules, laws, and diet

From that point on I visited the bottle every day at dusk. After the morning with Alexis and the afternoon in the sun, this became the third highlight of my day. I never ate more than a milk ball or two and at most half a licorice twist. It was the ritual that counted, the decadent taste of civilization in that strange fruitless Eden where I was allowed to eat practically anything, so long as it wasn’t food.
