Favorite Pagan Nature Quotes

1. "Why is propaganda so much more successful when it stirs up hatred than when it tries to stir up friendly feeling? The reason is clearly that the human heart as modern civilisation has made it is more prone to hatred than to friendship. And it is prone to hatred because it is dissatisfied, because it feels deply, perhaps even unconsciously, that it has somehow missed the meaning of life, that perhaps others, but not we ourselves, have secured the good things which nature offers man's enjoyment."
Author: Bertrand Russell
2. "By starving the sensibility of our pupils we only make them easier prey to the propagandist when he comes. For famished nature will be avenged and a hard heart is no infallible protection against a soft head."
Author: C.S. Lewis
3. "Pagan paths, of which there are many, more often than not, are based upon an acknowledgement of a Divine presence within nature, as acknowledged by the pre-Christian peoples of these Islands and Northern Europe more than 1500 years ago."
Author: Carole Carlton
4. "Paganism is that view of life which finds the highest goal of human existence in the healthy and harmonious and joyous development of existing human faculties. Very different is the Christian ideal. Paganism is optimistic with regard to unaided human nature, whereas Christianity is the religion of the broken heart."
Author: J. Gresham Machen
5. "It must not be thought, however, that in pagan Ireland Fairyland was altogether conceived as a Hades or place of the dead. We have already seen that in some of its types and aspects it was inherently nothing of the sort; as when, for example, it came to be confused with the Land of the Gods. In all likelihood these separate paradises and deadlands of a nature so various were the result of the stratified beliefs of successive races dwelling in the same region. A conquering race would scarcely credit that its heroes would, after death, betake themselves to the deadland of the beaten and enslaved aborigines. The gods of vanquished races might be conceived as presiding over spheres of the dead for which their victors would have nothing but contempt, and which, because of that very contempt, might come to be conceived as hells or places of a debased and grovelling kind, pestiferous regions which only the spirits of despised "natives" or the undesirable might inhabit."
Author: Lewis Spence

Today's Quote

Una vez fuimos a Tel Aviv a pasar la fiesta de Pésaj y, por la mañana temprano, cuando todos aún dormían, me vestí y me fui a jugar solo a una placita donde había un banco o dos, un columpio, una zona infantil y tres o cuatro árboles jóvenes donde ya cantaban los pájaros. Al cabo de unos meses, en Año Nuevo, volvimos a ir a Tel Aviv y la plaza ya no estaba allí. La habían trasladado, con los pequeños árboles, el columpio, el banco, los pájaros y la zona infantil, al otro lado de la calle. Me quedé desconcertado: no comprendía por qué Ben Gurión y las autoridades competentes permitían hacer algo así."
