[At The Foundation Of The Christian Life, There Is A Kind Of Sacred Individuality, A Sort Of Holy Aloneness That Cries Out To Be Left Alone With God. This Isn't All Of The Christian Life. It Doesn't Erase Those Parts Of A Christian's Experience That Happen In The Context Of Relationships, But This Sacred Solitude Needs To Be Discovered, Respected, And Protected.It Is That Place Where We Most Irrefutably Hear God Tell Us That He Loves Us, And We Come To Know That, No Matter What Other People May Say About Us Or Do To Us, God Will Not Abandon Us. That Holy Solitude Is The Place Where We Find God's Spirit Changing Our Affections And Redirecting Our Identities. It Is, For Jesus-followers, Holy Ground.]

Catherine Crowe Quotes

"The silence of a convent at night is the silence of the grave. Too far removed from the busy world without for external sounds to penetrate the thick walls, whilst within no slamming door, nor wandering foot, nor sacrilegious voice breaks in upon the stillness, the slightest noise strikes upon the ear with a fearful distinctness. ("The Monks Story")"

Richard Dawkins Quotes

"The story of Doubting Thomas is told, not so that we shall admire Thomas, but so that we can admire the other apostles in comparison. Thomas demanded evidence … The other apostles, whose faith was so strong that they did not need evidence, are held to us as worthy of imitation."

David Eagleman Quotes

"Societies would _not_ be better off if everyone were like Mr Spock, all rationality and no emotion. Instead, a balance - a teaming up of the internal rivals - is optimal for brains. ... Some balance of the emotional and rational systems is needed, and that balance may already be optimized by natural selection in human brains."

Quotes About Column

"...in better company, they found among all those hideous carcasses two skeletons, one of which held the other in its embrace. One of these skeletons, which was that of a woman, still had a few strips of a garment which had once been white, and around her neck was to be seen a string of adrezarach beads with a little silk bag ornamented with green glass, which was open and empty. These objects were of so little value that the executioner had probably not cared for them. The other, which held this one in a close embrace, was the skeleton of a man. It was noticed that his spinal column was crooked, his head seated on his shoulder blades, and that one leg was shorter than the other. Moreover, there was no fracture of the vertebrae at the nape of the neck, and it was evident that he had not been hanged. Hence, the man to whom it had belonged had come thither and had died there. When they tried to detach the skeleton which he held in his embrace, he fell to dust." - Author: Victor Hugo

Quotes About Novel Characters

"Dreams are important to me because they are so irrational. Im attracted to things which seem to fit together but dont in fact make any sense. Dreams didnt really have a lot to do with the novel whereas "The Adventuress," which was my first visual book, is almost entirely based on dreams. I had ten more or less random drawings and then I thought well, Ill make a plot that connects all of them. "The Three Incestuous Sisters" was kind of the same. The three characters appeared in a dream and I knew who they were." - Author: Audrey Niffenegger
