“Incites us brilliantly to stiffen our lip, to overcome . . . and to interweave our No with a programmatic Yes.”

. . . the Church is generally slow to validate miracles and apparitions, because if divine intervention in human affairs is too promiscuously recognized, then an obvious danger arises. If one leper can be cured, the flock may inquire, then why not all lepers? Allow of a too-easy miracle and it becomes harder to answer questions about infant leukemia or mass poverty and injustice with unsatisfying formulae about the Lord's preference for moving in mysterious ways.

--Christopher Hitchens, The Missionary Position

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.

Isn't it interesting that religious thinking and psychosis are so closely related you can't tell them apart?
-- Dr. Gregory House

[wry chuckle] You know what they say about "birds of a feather," right?

Our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness. -- Vladimir Nabokov

Dead people receive more flowers than the living ones because the regret is stronger than gratitude. -- Anne Frank
