His sanctity will never be yours; you must have the humility to work out your own salvation in a darkness where you are absolutely alone.” ~ Thomas Merton

    regard for what are believed to be divine laws and a sentimental belief in the sanctity of human

    unfit and human life is valuable only when it is of use to the community or race.” ~ Madison Grant
  50. “What has here happened is that the instinct of cruelty, which has turned inwards, has become self-torture, and all man’s animal instincts have been reinterpreted as guilt towards God.

La Follette, Sr.
  58. “We are used to discounting the river-gods and dryads of the Greeks as poetical fancies, and even the chief figures in the classical Pantheon-Venus, Minerva, Mars, and the rest-as allegories.

  59. “Ruskin’s much-derided moral theory of art was part of an attempt to show that this human activity, which we value so highly, engaged the whole of human personality.

That I think is the biggest reason they feel hostile towards the Christian faith.” ~ Ravi Zacharias
  62. “Much later, when I understood what perfection was, I realized that to become a saint one must suffer a great deal, always seek what is best, and forget oneself.
