Philosophy—Humanism Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

What is sacred to Bokononism?" I asked after a while.

"Not even God, as near as I can tell."

"Nothing?"

"Just one thing."

I made some guesses. "The ocean? The sun?"

"Man," said Frank. "That's all. Just man." (94.15-20)

Bokononism may be a fake religion, but it seems to embody the very real philosophy of humanism. And yes, religious humanism is totally a thing.
