Ignoranti quem portum petat nullus suus ventus est
Epistolae, LXXI., 3, Lucius Annaeus Seneca.

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
Macbeth, William Shakespeare.

Auferre trucidare rapere falsis nominibus imperium, atque ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant.
De vita et moribus Iulii Agricolae, Publius Cornelius Tacitus

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is the demand for their real happiness. To call on them to give up their illusions about their condition is to call on them to give up a condition that requires illusions.
Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right, Karl Marx
