[Though I Myself Am An Atheist, I Openly Profess Religion In The Sense Just Mentioned, That Is, A Nature Religion. I Hate The Idealism That Wrenches Man Out Of Nature; I Am Not Ashamed Of My Dependency On Nature; I Openly Confess That The Workings Of Nature Affect Not Only My Surface, My Skin, My Body, But Also My Core, My Innermost Being, That The Air I Breathe In Bright Weather Has A Salutary Effect Not Only On My Lungs But Also On My Mind, That The Light Of The Sun Illumines Not Only My Eyes But Also My Spirit And My Heart. And I Do Not, Like A Christian, Believe That Such Dependency Is Contrary To My True Being Or Hope To Be Delivered From It. I Know Further That I Am A Finite Moral Being, That I Shall One Day Cease To Be. But I Find This Very Natural And Am Therefore Perfectly Reconciled To The Thought.]

Stephanie Dowrick Quotes

"[...] as I have seen with other people whose sense of their work is vocational rather than pragmatic, my desire to write, to understand things at a depth I can reach in no other way, pushes me to write and go on writing, even when my wants—for an easier or more sociable life, or one less exposed and fraught—are certainly well known to my rational mind. p.293"

Quotes About Christian Idols

"The lesson I have learned is that a failure to cultivate the imagination leads to an unintended neglect of the imaginative literature of Scripture, and this in turn leads to some degree of spiritual atrophy. For Christians, the stories of Revelation are not optional reading. Nor are they childs play. Imaginative literature--the kind of literature that invites us to see in our imaginations what we cannot see with our eyes--is an important part of the Christians literary diet. It challenges our idols. It challenges what is false and trivial in our lives." - Author: Tony Reinke

Quotes About Shor

"You may be astonished that in such a short period of time I could go from weeping over the muffled killing of a flying fish to gleefully bludgeoning to death a dorado. I could explain it by arguing that profiting from a pitiful flying fishs navigational mistake made me shy and sorrowful, while the excitement of actively capturing a great dorado made me sanguinary and self-assured. But in point of fact the explanation lies elsewhere. It is simple and brutal: a person can get used to anything, even to killing." - Author: Yann Martel
