Jonathan Malley Quotes

"The idea isnt to do the impossible. The idea is to show the world that if one man can do the impossible, then maybe the rest of the world can do whats possible."

Norman F Cantor Quotes

"The Gnostics (also called Manichees) postulated that there were two gods -- the Christian God of goodness and light, and an evil anti-God of darkness. This theory proved an easy explanation of why there was evil in the world. It was rejected by Catholic Christianity in favor of the monotheistic view that there was one God who created only goodness. Evil was sin, a rebellious falling-away from God, a perversion of His goodness. This was the foundation of the evolving Christian concept of Satan."

Edward Babinski Quotes

"Dont creationists ever wonder about the fact that the paleontologists found ape-like skulls with the human leg and foot bones, rather than the other way around, i.e., human skulls with ape leg and foot bones? . . . Come on, creationists, think about it! Did God hide the human skulls, only leaving behind leg and foot bones belonging to human midgets with misshapen feet, and mix such bones only with the skulls of ape-like creatures with larger cranial capacities than living apes? What a kidder the creationists God must be."

Quotes About Against Violence

"At first I protested and rebelled against poetry. I was about to deny my poetic worlds. I was doing violence to my illusions with analysis, science, and learning Henrys language, entering Henrys world. I wanted to destroy by violence and animalism my tenuous fantasies and illusions and my hypersensitivity. A kind of suicide. The ignominy awakened me. Then June came and answered the cravings of my imagination and saved me. Or perhaps she killed me, for now I am started on a course of madness." - Author: Anaïs Nin

Quotes About Dan Blair

Quotes About Mom And Son

"I just read this great quote by Junot Diaz, he was talking about true intimacy, and he was saying that it was the willingness to be vulnerable and to be found out. Thats what I felt that YA did. It wasnt pretentious, and it wasnt hiding its heart. It wanted to be found out...It felt like those moments when you go to a party and youre standing around for a long time, going, I dont fit in here, what am I going to talk to these people about? And everybodys getting drunk, and then you find this one person, and you end up sitting in some corner talking about all these arcane things.And then before you know it youre having a conversation about the meaning of life and its four oclock in the morning. That kind of feeling, that kind of intimacy — I felt like thats what I got from YA." - Author: Libba Bray
