"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

No more of those left to give....

Obama speaks, you listen:

"You have to go through life with more than just a passion for change—you have to have strategy," Obama said, saying that what is needed is "not just awareness but action, not just hashtags but votes." In the end, showing up on Election Day is what matters. "People try to make this political thing really complicated,” Obama said. “You know what? Just vote. It's math. If you have more votes than the other guy, you get to do what you want."

Sorry, Bernie.

"Change requires more than righteous anger," Obama added, specifically criticizing those who try to shut down political rallies.  "Don't do that," Obama said. "No matter how ridiculous or offensive you might find the things that come out of their mouths. Because as my grandmother used to tell me, 'Every time a fool speaks they are just advertising their own ignorance.'"

Yup; and, yup.
