    Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly; Man got to sit and wonder, Why, why, why

    -Kurt Vonnegut

    All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

    -Arthur Schopenhauer

    "One always dies too soon—or too late. And yet, life is there, finished: the line is drawn, and it must all be added up. You are nothing other than your life."

    - Jean-Paul Sartre (from No Exit)

    "I do not believe in Belief. But this is an Age of Faith, and there are so many militant creeds that, in self defence, one has to formulate a creed of one's own. Tolerance, good temper and sympathy are no longer enough in a world where ignorance rules, and Science, which ought to have ruled, plays the pimp. Tolerance, good temper and sympathy — they are what matter really, and if the human race is not to collapse they must come to the front before long."

    -E.M. Forster

    I don't know about defining my world view, but I'm quite fond of them.
