"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

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

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

Pete Seeger

Also:  Pete Seeger before HUAC.  HUAC was still around 11 years later; it made its way into a Paul Simon song in 1966. In fact,  HUAC existed from 1938 to 1975.  Pete was 19 when HUAC stared, 56 when it came to an end.

Pete will be missed.

Pete Seeger, a voice like a smooth cup of coffee at a coffee house and a good heart. A pretty good banjo player. A man who wasn't embarrassed to be who he was and to hold aspirations that became unfashionable. He will be missed. He's the kind of person you just expect to be there.
