7. "Those who have attained everlasting life in the vision of God doubtless know very well that it is no mere bribe, but the very consummation of their earthly discipleship; but we who have not yet attained it cannot know this in the same way, and cannot even begin to know it at all except by continuing to obey and finding the first reward of our obedience is our increasing power to desire the ultimate reward. Just in proportion as the desire grows, our fear lest it should be a mercenary desire will die away and finally be recognized as an absurdity. But probably this will not, for most of us, happen in a day; poetry replaces grammar, gospel replaces law, longing transforms obedience, as gradually as the tide lifts a grounded ship."

35. "(…) Il potere non è più infatti clerico-fascista, non è più repressivo. Non possiamo più usare contro di esso gli argomenti – a cui eravamo tanto abituati e quasi affezionati – che tanto abbiamo adoperato contro il potere clerico-fascista, contro il potere repressivo. Il nuovo potere consumistico e permissivo si è valso proprio delle nostre conquiste mentali di laici, di illuministi, di razionalisti, per costruire la propria impalcatura di falso laicismo, di falso illuminismo, di falsa razionalità. (…) Ha portato al limite massimo la sua unica possibile sacralità: la sacralità del consumo come rito, e, naturalmente, della merce come feticcio."

Figured I might as well see what you ladies were up to."

50. "Commerce is considered by classical economists to be a positive-sumgame. The act of selling and buying always benefits both the sellerand the buyer. It is unfortunate that popular culture has propagatedthe Marxist myth that one person gains in business at the expense ofanother, that capitalism is evil because it is a zero-sum game—somebodywins while someone else loses. When liberals make the argumentthat capitalism is the cause of all of our problems, they are eitherspeaking out of abject ignorance or being totally disingenuous toprotect their interests. We have not had true free-market capitalismin this country on any wide scale. Where we have had economicsuccesses in this nation's history, it has been those times when peoplehave done something outside of the government's involvement. Everytime the federal government has been involved, it has created chaos,waste, and corruption."
