• It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one’s life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than ‘try to be a little kinder.’ — Aldous Leonard Huxley (1894–1963) English writer & philosopher
• Faith consists in being vitally concerned with that ultimate reality to which I give the symbolical name of God. Whoever reflects earnestly on the meaning of life is on the verge of an act of faith. — Paul Johannes Tillich (1886–1965) German-American Christian existentialist philosopher
