"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

June 6, 1944

I come to this via Charlie Pierce, and I don't add a crumb to the audience that will read it today if only because Pierce linked it first.

But dammit, this is what today is about, from someone who was there, then.  This is what we should remember today.
