It is always a great honour to mention a truth which has not become widespread yet. One of these truths is that man has no soul; he has only 'body' and 'mind'. Man's unshakable belief on the soul will not change this scientific truth! No belief can be higher than the scientific truths! Man can be born, can walk and work and can think without owning a mysterious and an immaterial soul! The soullessness of the man is a great tragedy both for the man and for the religion. But Man, contrary to the religion, will come out with triumph from this tragedy.

It is more than enough to be an ethically and an evolutionarily developed human being. All other titles and identities of man are inferior to this fact!
It is not enough to have a light; it must be shared with others! For the darkness to diminish, we must eagerly share the truth!
It is not important at all that we were all once an ape! The important thing is that how very much we evolved and how far we got away from the apes!

It is true that prosperity has many close friends; poverty, on the other hand, has only distant watchers!
It is up to man to be an angel or a devil! You become whatever you choose to be!
It is winter time! Feed the birds! Teach your children to feed the birds! Request your neighbour to feed the birds! Encourage your friends to feed the birds!
It is winter time, my friend; buy couple of breads; find a place calm and quiet and feed the birds; and for this action of yours, ask no more reward than their cheerful singings!
It is wonderful to have great ambitions and splendid dreams as long as these ambitions and dreams are wonderful for the humanity too!

Kings also sleep; but the clever ones, with one eye open, just like dolphins and whales
Kings kill; clowns don't; therefore the clowns of the kings are more valuable than the kings!
Kings kill; jesters don't; therefore the jesters of the kings are more valuable than the kings!
