"There's a lot I don't tell my father when he calls asking after Amy.

The last time she was asked out by a successful bachelor, Amy hesitated before saying, 'Thanks for asking, but I'm really not into white guys right now." - David Sedaris

"In science we see progress. In art there is no progress. In art the questions have always been the same. From the beginning of time till now, we are always asking the same questions.

A new dream, but in essence so much the same as the many others that had plagued me in the past months. No, not a dream. Surely a memory. I could still feel the heat of Jared's lips on mine.

My heart ached when they gave up, falling to the bed limp and empty." - Stephenie Meyer

"You are a child of God, small games do not work in this world. For those around us to feel peace, it is not example to make ourselves small.

"We should, can and most of the time do communicate with God directly. To my knowledge, angels are not necessary for anything. But God's creation is abundant, and asking "Why angels?" would be like asking why there are thousands of varieties of trees or stars, when we could get along with so much less.

E. J. Brouwer
