"You have attributed conditions to villainy that simply result from stupidity."
— Robert A. Heinlein (The Green Hills of Earth)

"The most preposterous notion that Homo sapiens has ever dreamed up is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery.

— Robert A. Heinlein

and my personal favorite-
"The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive."
— Robert A. Heinlein
