"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

"Social Justice Isn't a Gift It Is a Given"

I could write a disquisition just on the Rev. Wright's discussion of personality formation between Europe and Africa.  I think the notion of "I" became more prominent in Europe after the Romantics, not with Descartes, but that's a minor matter.  He makes powerful points here; not least in the anecdote that produces the title Thought Criminal gave when he posted this, and which I'm confiscating here along with the video he originally posted.
