Ramble. Focus. Ramble.

Only a few of my favourite quotes from Dan Brown Series


Dan Brown's signature

“if it wasn’t painfully difficult, you did it wrong!”
— Dan Brown (Angels & Demons)



“Mr. Langdon all questions were once spiritual. Since the beginning of time spirituality and religion have been called on to fill in the gaps that science did not understand. The rising and setting of the sun was once attributed to Helios and a flaming chariot. Earthquakes and tidal waves were the wrath of Poseidon. Science has now proven those gods to be false idols. Soon all gods will be proven to be false idols. Science has now provided answers to almost every question man can ask. There are only a few questions left and they are the esoteric ones. Where do we come from What are we doing here? What is the meaning of life and the universe? ” — Dan Brown (Angels & Demons)


“The truth, however, was stranger still.”
— Dan Brown (The Lost Symbol)


“Buddha had said:
“Each of us is a God. Each of us knows all. We need only open our minds to hear our own wisdom.”
— Dan Brown (Angels & Demons)


“faith does not protect you. medicine and airbags… those are the things that protect you. God does not protect you. Intelligence protects you. enlightenment. put your faith in something with tangible results. how long has it been since someone walked on water? modern miracles belong to science.. computers, vaccines, space stations… even the devine miracle of creation. Matter from nothing… in a lab. Who needs God? No! Science is God!

— Dan Brown (Angels & Demons)


“One final bit of advice. The next time a senior administrator of the CIA tells you she has a national-security crisis … Leave the bullshit in Cambridge.”
— Dan Brown (The Lost Symbol)


“Google” is not a synonym for research.”

— Dan Brown (The Lost Symbol)


Faith – Acceptance of which we imagine to be true, that which we cannot prove.”
— Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code)


“Sooner or later we’ve all got to let go of our past.”
— Dan Brown (Deception Point)


“Faith is universal. Our specific methods for understanding it are arbitrary. Some of us pray to Jesus, some of us go to Mecca, some of us study subatomic particles. In the end we are all just searching for truth, that which is greater than ourselves.”
— Dan Brown (Angels & Demons)


“By its very nature, history is always a one-sided account.”
— Dan Brown



“Science tells me God must exist. My mind tells me I will never understand God. And my heart tells me I am not meant to.”
— Dan Brown (Angels & Demons)


“If a hippo ever wants to fight, just walk away.”

— Dan Brown
