“She thought it funny how the poor environment had been raped just fine until there was a sufficient excess of the people who had effected the raping to produce sufficient numbers of themselves who were sufficiently idle that they might begin to protest the raping of the environment, which was irretrievably lost to the raping by that point. And this would be the great soothing cathedral music, the stopping of the chainsaws amid the patter of acid rain, that all good citizens would listen to for the quarter-century it took them all to wire up to cyberspace and forget about the lost hopeless run-over gang-ridden land, reproducing madly still all the while, inside their bunkers listening to NPR.” ― Padgett Powell, Mrs. Hollingsworth’s Men

“Today we have to learn all over again that love for the sinner and love for the person who has been harmed are correctly balanced if I punish the sinner in the form that is possible and appropriate. In this respect there was in the past a change of mentality, in which the law and the need for punishment were obscured. Ultimately this also narrowed the concept of law, which in fact is not only just being nice or courteous, but is found in the truth. And another component of the truth is that I must punish the one who has sinned against real love” ― Pope Benedict XVI, Light of the World: The Pope, the Church, and the Signs of the Times – A Conversation with Peter Seewald

“You see, it’s really quite simple. A simile is just a mode of comparison employing ‘as’ and ‘like’ to reveal the hidden character or essence of whatever we want to describe, and through the use of fancy, association, contrast, extension, or imagination, to enlarge our understanding or perception of human experience and observation.” ― Norton Juster, As Silly as Knees, As Busy as Bees: An Astounding Assortment of Similes

“What are you burning?” On a glance, just some papers. “I write in a journal.” He spoke below his breath, so that his words weren’t quite for me. “Because I like to see everything written down. So that I know it really happened. That I wasn’t just making it up. Then I read it and memorize it. And then I have to destroy the hard evidence.” I thought of my own journal, the muddle of every page. All those unfiltered, lunatic letters to Sean Ryan. “What is it, exactly, that you need to destroy?” “Everything that I don’t want to be true.” ― Adele Griffin, Tighter

“I pretend not to be a champion of that same naked virtue called truth, to the very outrance. I can consent that her charms be hidden with a veil, were it but for decency’s sake.” ― Walter Scott, Kenilworth

“Now she understood a few things: that the American academy, which one might have thought the place to defend freedom of speech, had been the seat and soul of abrogating freedom of speech, if the first assault on its freedom can be said to be restricting, or handcuffing speech. The day she heard “redneck” on NPR, she turned NPR off, not because broadcasters were still using the term, but because she knew one day they would not be. In fact, she had a vision of the quiet moment backstage at a Boston studio when a good, surprised correspondent was let go for saying “redneck” the last time it would be said.” ― Padgett Powell, Mrs. Hollingsworth’s Men

“He could very likely have appealed for leniency. At least he could have saved his life by agreeing to leave Athens. But had he done this he would not have been Socrates. He valued his conscience–and the truth– higher than life.” ― Jostein Gaarder, Sophie’s World

“We should not be ashamed to acknowledge truth and to assimilate it from whatever source it comes to us, even if it is brought to us by former generations and foreign peoples. For him who seeks the truth there is nothing of higher value than truth itself; it never cheapens or debases him who reaches for it but ennobles and honors him.” ― Yaqub ibn Ishaq al-Kindi

“But what a feeling can come over a man just from seeing the things he believes in and hopes for symbolized in the concrete form of a man. In something that gives a focus to all the other things he knows to be real. Something that makes unseen things manifest and allows him to come to his hopes and dreams through his outer eye and through the touch and feel of his natural hand.” ― Ralph Ellison, Juneteenth

“We didn’t try to force God’s hand or do the “I just heard a sermon about David and Goliath so I need to quit my job right this second” leap of faith that’s so popular in Christian circles. We took our time with the decision, like another guy in the Bible, named Jesus. He spent thirty years in obscurity before he started his adventure. Often, we’re not willing to spend thirty minutes in preparation, never mind thirty years, especially when we come home from a conference and find our day jobs waiting for us on Monday morning. I’m not sure why Christians sometimes think the maturation of our own missions will be radically shorter than that of Jesus. But it happens and in the past I’ve certainly wanted to take wild, unplanned, possibly-not-inspired-by-God leaps of faith.” ― Jonathan Acuff, Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job and Your Dream Job
