Selected Quotes of Christopher Hitchens

"What can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof. "
   --Christopher Hitchens

"Q: If God does not exist, what then is the purpose of life? A: Well, I can only answer for myself. What cheers me up? I suppose mainly gloating over the misfortunes of other people. Yes, I guess that has to be it. Mainly, crowing over the misery of others. It doesn‘t always work, but it never completely fails. And then there’s irony. Sex can have diminishing returns, but it’s amazing. No, that‘s pretty much it. Then it’s clear onto the grave. "
