Denis Diderot quote about world from Rameau's Nephew - The important point is that you and I should exist, and that we should be you and me. Let everything else get on as best it can. The best order of things, as I see it, is the one that includes me; to hell with the most perfect of worlds, if I'm not part of it. I prefer to be, and even to be an impudent logic-chopper, than not to be.
