"Return to nature, to humanity, to thyself! Strew flowers over the road of life: cease to contemplate the future; live to thine own happiness; exist for they fellow-creatures; retire into thyself, examine thine own heart, then consider the sensitive beings by whom thou art surrounded, and leave those Gods who can effect nothing towards they felicity."
-Baron d'Holbach, from The System of Nature

It's a very pretty philosophy, if nothing else.
