"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

Xmas Presence

The book I should have on my reading list for Christmas (it's an atavism from school days, but Christmas "break" makes me want to sit and read a book or two), if only because the final chapter on contemporary theology reminds me again (no, seriously), of what my life's work should be, but hasn't been so far.

I'm getting so tired of waiting to find out what I'm gonna be when I grow up.
