"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

"Dragons do not do well in captivity."

I have absolutely no interest in "Game of Thrones," but the line by Tyrion (my daughter watches it) is going to become my motto:

"That's what I do.  I drink, and I know things."

Now, if I could just get somebody to pay me for that......

If I'm going to read about depraved medieval folk, I'd rather read about the real ones. They were plenty depraved enough, though our leaders, the real ones, the oligarchs, are as depraved as any.
