„There is not a single criterion which can serve as the measure of the non-existent, of the non-human.“

—  Anton Chekhov Russian dramatist, author and physician 1860 - 1904
Alternate translation: Not one of our mortal gauges is suitable for evaluating non-existence, for making judgments about that which is not a person. Ни одна наша смертная мерка не годится для суждения о небытии, о том, что не есть человек.

„My spiritual quest has always been to bring me closer to my purpose in life, a better relationship with the force that brought me into existence, and how to relate to fellow human beings.“

—  Dawud Wharnsby Canadian musician 1972
Context: When it comes to "Islam" —  I look at the word as the verbal noun it is: an action word. I see Islam as something someone does, not something someone "belongs to". I believe that "religion", as the world commonly knows it today, is a divisive factor in community. When I was about 15 years old, I renounced a belief in the importance of "religion", seeking rather to find answers to life's questions. My spiritual quest has always been to bring me closer to my purpose in life, a better relationship with the force that brought me into existence, and how to relate to fellow human beings. When I was 17, I started reading scriptures from around the world and the more I read the more commonality I saw between them all. When I discovered the Qur'an at the age of 20, it seemed to be the most organic in its message. I got out of "religion" and got into life. To this day, I renounce a trust in the institutions of "religion".
