"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Bon anniversaire!

It is Voltaire's birthday. I have it on good authority that he was known to consume 50-75 cups of coffee per day. A man after my own heart.

We must tend our own gardens, but Juan Valdez must tend a really big one for the addicts among us.

Bonne fête!
