They said I would never live. I lived. They said I would never think. I think. They said I would never walk. I walked. They said I would never dance, but I never danced anyway.
Caryll Houselander
I wanted to shut my mind, that my thoughts might closeon my own peace, I wanted to closethe peace of my love in my heartlike dew in a dark rose.From Philip Speaks

If Christ is God, He cannot sin, and if suffering was a sin in and by itself, He could not have suffered and died for us. However, since He took the most horrific death to redeem us, He showed us in fact that suffering and pain have great power.
E.A. Bucchianeri
Poor God, how often He is blamed for all the suffering in theworld. It's like praising Satan for allowing all the good that happens.
E.A. Bucchianeri
... how terrible is the pain of the mind and heart when the freedom of mankind is suppressed!
E.A. Bucchianeri
If you boil it down, just because someone else does the wrong thing we are not exempt from doing what's right.
E.A. Bucchianeri
... it's a blessed thing to love and feel loved in return.

If a man cannot serve two masters, neither can Christianity, or several thousand of them as the case may be.

It is unfortunate that in most cases when the sins of the father fall on the son it is because unlike God, people refuse to forgive and forget and heap past wrongs upon innocent generations.

There has to be a cut-off somewhere between the freedom of expression and a graphically explicit free-for-all.

Make your lives a masterpiece, you only get one canvas.

An acquaintance merely enjoys your company, a fair-weather companion flatters when all is well, a true friend has your best interests at heart and the pluck to tell you what you need to hear.

...it's just another one of those things I don't understand: everyone impresses upon you how unique you are, encouraging you to cultivate your individuality while at the same time trying to squish you and everyone else into the same ridiculous mould. It's an artist's right to rebel against the world's stupidity.

Socrates: Have you noticed on our journey how often the citizens of this new land remind each other it is a free country? Plato: I have, and think it odd they do this.Socrates: How so, Plato?Plato: It is like reminding a baker he is a baker, or a sculptor he is asculptor.Socrates: You mean to say if someone is convinced of their trade, they haveno need to be reminded.Plato: That is correct.Socrates: I agree. If these citizens were convinced of their freedom, they would not need reminders.

Falling in love is very real, but I used to shake my head when people talked about soul mates, poor deluded individuals grasping at some supernatural ideal not intended for mortals but sounded pretty in a poetry book. Then, we met, and everything changed, the cynic has become the converted, the sceptic, an ardent zealot.

The devil has not vanished simply because people refuse to believe he exists, no more than God has...
E.A. Bucchianeri
Evil influence is like a nicotine patch, you cannot help but absorb what sticks to you.
E.A. Bucchianeri
It was not curiosity that killed the goose who laid the golden egg, but an insatiable greed that devoured common sense.
E.A. Bucchianeri
Since art is considered a noble field, art should be used to promote all that is good and noble, and in a noble fashion.

Sweetheart, darling, dearest, it was funny to think that these endearments, which used to sound exceedingly sentimental in movies and books, now held great importance, simple but true verbal affirmations of how they felt for each other. They were words only the heart could hear and understand, words that could impart entire pentameter sonnets in their few, short syllables.
E.A. Bucchianeri
Errors do not cease to be errors simply because they're ratified into law.
E.A. Bucchianeri
It's not unpatriotic to denounce an injustice committed on our behalf, perhaps it's the most patriotic thing we can do.
E.A. Bucchianeri
... what you think is right isn't the same as knowing what is right.
E.A. Bucchianeri
Love, like everything else in life, should be a discovery, an adventure, and like most adventures, you don't know you're having one until you're right in the middle of it.
