Quotes About Thad

"The world of things entered your infant mindTo populate that crystal cabinet.Within its walls the strangest partners met,And things turned thoughts did propagate their kind.For, once within, corporeal fact could findA spirit. Fact and you in mutual debtBuilt there your little microcosm - which yetHad hugest tasks to its small self assigned.Dead men can live there, and converse with stars:Equator speaks with pole, and night with day;Spirit dissolves the worlds material bars -A million isolations burn away.The Universe can live and work and plan,At last made God within the mind of man." - Author: Julian Huxley

Quotes About Atheism And Christianity

"One response was given by the innkeeper when Mary and Joseph wanted to find a room where the Child could be born. The innkeeper was not hostile; he was not opposed to them, but his inn was crowded; his hands were full; his mind was preoccupied. This§ is the answer that millions are giving today. Like a Bethlehem innkeeper, they cannot find room for Christ. All the accommodations in their hearts are already taken up by other crowding interests. Their response is not atheism. It is not defiance. It is preoccupation and the feeling of being able to get on reasonably well without Christianity." - Author: Billy Graham
