Quote O’Day 4

“I sometimes despair of getting anything quite simple and honest done in this world by the help of men.  They would have to be passed through a powerful press first, to squeeze their old notions out of them, so that they would not soon get upon their legs again; and then there would be some one in the company with a maggot in his head, hatched from an egg deposited nobody knows when — for not even fire kills these things — and you would have lost your labor.”  –Thoreau, Walden

Quote of the Day

From N.T. Wright’s book, Simply Jesus

[Christianity] isn’t about “religion” in the sense the Western world has imagined for over two hundred years. This is about everything: life, art, the universe, justice, death, money. It’s about politics, philosophy, culture, and being human.”
