Just to make clear, I'm not a professional "quote-maker", I am just an atheist teenager who values scientific fact over any silly book of fairy-tales and mythology written over 3500 years ago. That said, I am open to any and all criticisms.

"In this moment, I am euphoric, not because of any phony God's blessing, but because, I am enlightened by my own intelligence."

Eh?

You don't just make up quotes so you can be quoted on it, without any meaningful context.

If you're just out to stroke your own ego, at least be sly about it and actually slip it into a conversation or article.

Remove the word phony. It doesn't sound right.

So you're happy because you think you're smart...

... and you're basing this idea of intelligence on the fact that you don't believe in a God's blessing...

... which is obviously making other people happy...

... but not you and because you know that you're still happy?

Stupid. You're happy because you think you're intelligent. Big deal.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16

I've been reading quotes for about 12 years, I've read absolute thousands of them, I can sometimes even tell who spoke the quotes even before seeing who the author was.

And I know a good quote when I see one, yours isn't a good quote I am afraid to say.

There is no merit in giving yourself merit.

Now that's a good quote.
