He/she will soon understand there is nothing new to discover, all quests of human life have been experience and discovered in the past and all we do to play the game over and over to gain a different result, like an idiot who watches movie several time and hope to see a different ending. In such age, people no to remain enthusiastic, they need to still be excited about the story, which they have heard more than millions of times. Hence, intellectuals and creators create new toys for them. The toys that practically has the same purpose and affect the same result, but ordinary human does not need to know that.

These people – the thinkers, the writers, the entrepreneurs, the artists, the scientists, the researchers, the inventors – held on to their beliefs against the majority of their times. These people were the creators. They changed the world! Others criticized them, vilified them or opposed them but they kept on marching ahead. They faced, they fought, and they suffered. But they won!”

“The whole time I was in front of the camera, I was thinking of the artist. A fellow creator who had poured her soul into something truly remarkable that might simply be ignored by the whole world.

I was trying to figure out why she had created this thing and, in the same breath, calling out the world for its callous ignorance of beauty and form… I wanted people to wake up and spend a few moments looking at the exceptional amazement of human creation.”

30. C. JoyBell C.

“People are creators. But I doubt that many realize this. We are not meant to go out into the world and find flawless things, we are not meant to sit down and have flawless things fall into our laps. But we are creators. We can create a beautiful thing out of what we have. The problem with idealistic people is that they see themselves as receivers instead of creators, they end up hunting for the flaw in everything in order to measure it up to their ideals. Now, when you see yourself as a creator, you can look at a chunk of marble and see the angel within it. Then you carve until you have set that angel free.”

36. Paramahansa Yogananda

“The Creator, in taking infinite pains to shroud with mystery His presence in every atom of creation, could have had but one motive – a sensitive desire that men seek Him only through free will.”

37. Orison Swett Marden

46. Stephen Hawking

“God may exist, but science can explain the universe without the need for a creator.”

47. Bob Dylan

“You hear a lot about God these days: God, the beneficent; God, the all-great; God, the Almighty; God, the most powerful; God, the giver of life; God, the creator of death. I mean, we’re hearing about God all the time, so we better learn how to deal with it. But if we know anything about God, God is arbitrary.”

48. Thich Nhat Hanh

“Changing is not just changing the things outside of us. First of all we need the right view that transcends all notions including of being and non-being, creator and creature, mind and spirit. That kind of insight is crucial for transformation and healing.”

90. Sam Harris

“The usefulness of religion – the fact that it gives life meaning, that it makes people feel good – is not an argument for the truth of any religious doctrine.
