Who gave us thesponge to wipe away the entire horizon? What did we do when weunchained the earth from its sun? Whither is it moving now?Whither are we moving now? Away from all suns? Are we not perpetually falling? Backwards, sideward, forward, in all directions? Is there any up or down left? Are we not straying as though through Infinite nothing?Where is God? God is Dead.

What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves?

We regard it as we regard the statement that it is a fine day; nobody thinks that it can possibly have any serious effect on the man or on the world.

Murderers would be given medals for saving men from life; firemen would be denounced for keeping men from death; poisons would be used as medicines; doctors would be called in when people were well; the Royal Humane Society would be rooted out like a horde of assassins. Yet we never speculate as to whether the conversational pessimist will strengthen or disorganize society; for we are convinced that theories do not matter."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
13. "If the characters are not wicked, the book is." We must tell stories the way God does, stories in which a sister must float her little brother on a river with nothing but a basket between him and the crocodiles. Stories in which a king is a coward, and a shepherd boy steps forward to face the giant. Stories with fiery serpents and leviathans and sermons in whirlwinds. Stories in which murderers are blinded on donkeys and become heroes. Stories with dens of lions and fiery furnaces and lone prophets laughing at kings and priests and demons. Stories with heads on platters. Stories with courage and crosses and redemption. Stories with resurrections."
Author: G.K. Chesterton

First degree is intentional; second degree, irresponsible; third degree, accidental. But with crimes of the heart, the distinctions are more subtle. Who is it to say when a secret turns into a sin? With a daydream, a kiss, a confession? Who is to say which transgression is worse: sexual or emotional, coveting or caressing?"
Author: Galt Niederhoffer

Today's Quote

Fuori soffiava un vento forte e impetuoso, dentro all'appartamento però si stava bene. La stufa infatti emanava un calore ideale. Dai vetri leggermente appannati si vedevano i rami di un albero secco disegnare nell'aria delle fantasie elaborate. Il gusto dolce e quello amaro del tè si sposavano alla perfezione con quell'atmosfera. Io ero seduta sul divano e Rumi coricata su un enorme cuscino appoggiato sul pavimento. Sulle ginocchia aveva un plaid di maglia davvero bello.Erano mesi che non passavo dei momenti così rilassanti in compagnia di qualcuno."
