Quote
"Our hearts were made for Thee O Lord, and they are restless, until they find their rest in Thee."-St. Augustine

"Men come and go, but earth abides."-George R. Stewart

"Acquire a peaceful spirit, and around you thousands will be saved."- St. Seraphim of Sarov

"Perhaps the feelings that we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows a person who he should be." -Anton Chekhov

"Evil labours with vast power and perpetual success-in vain: preparing always only the soil for unexpected good to sprout in."-J.R.R. Tolkien

"Christianity met the mythological search for romance by being a story and the philosophical search for truth by being a true story."- G.K. Chesterton

"If nothing that can be seen can either be God or represent Him to us as He is, then to find God we must pass beyond everything that can be seen and enter into darkness. Since nothing that can be heard is God, to find Him we must enter into silence."-Thomas Merton

"Sam, you're a gentleman and a scholar, and there are damn few left of us."-My Uncle Jerry

Joseph Robert replied to Braeden's discussion Star Trek or Star Wars? in the group The Great Debate
"Neither is better. They are so very different. Star Trek is a serialized episodic TV show that hits on great themes of life in 45 minute bursts over 50 years. TV has seen nothing else like it. The movies were OK, but it was the television series…"
