A Quote by Marion G. Romney on civilization, direction, god, hope, learning, people, power, science, spirituality, survival, thought, and war

Many people correctly make the point that our only hope is to turn to God. For example, Charles Lindbergh, who said that in his young manhood he thought "science was more important than either man or God," and that "without a highly developed science modern man lacks the power to survive," . . . went to Germany after the war to see what Allied bombing had done to the Germans, who had been leaders in science. There, he says, "I learned that if his civilization is to continue, modern man must direct the material power of his science by the spiritual truths of his God."

A Quote by Marilyn vos Savant on behavior, competition, garden, individuality, life, people, and survival

Loving behavior contributes to the group at the expense of the individual. Competition contributes to the survival of the individual at the expense of the group. In the garden of life, some people are more like flowers, and other people are more like weeds.

A Quote by Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein on death, eternity, failure, immortality, life, purpose, soul, survival, and present

Not only is there no guarantee of the temporal immortality of the human soul, that is to say of its eternal survival after death; but, in any case, this assumption completely fails to accomplish the purpose for which it has always been intended. Or is some riddle solved by my surviving forever? Is not this eternal life itself as much of a riddle as our present life?

I was taught that the human brain was the crowning glory of evolution so far, but I think it's a very poor scheme for survival.
