"And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”"

“Wherefore, though good and bad men suffer alike, we must not suppose that there is no difference between the men themselves, because there is no difference in what they both suffer. For even in the likeness of the sufferings, there remains an unlikeness in the sufferers; and though exposed to the same anguish, virtue and vice are not the same thing. For as the same fire causes gold to glow brightly, and chaff to smoke; and under the same flail the straw is beaten small, while the grain is cleansed; and as the lees are not mixed with the oil, though squeezed out of the vat by the same pressure, so the same violence of affliction proves, purges, clarifies the good, but damns, ruins, exterminates the wicked. And thus it is that in the same affliction the wicked detest God and blaspheme, while the good pray and praise. So material a difference does it make, not what ills are suffered, but what kind of man suffers them. For, stirred up with the same movement, mud exhales a horrible stench, and ointment emits a fragrant odor.”

Augustine, City of God, Book I, Chapter 8

by understanding he established the heavens;
by his knowledge the deeps broke open,
and the clouds drop down the dew."

"Culture is not different from nature. Human culture is natural. It is evolved, as much as the behavior of mockingbirds or ants. All of life is evolved. The natural/biological vs. cultural distinction is not only wrong, it is dangerous. [On the same token], humans are not rational."

"For,’ the outsider will say, ‘in fact, as a woman, I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman my country is the whole world.’ And if, when reason has said its say, still some obstinate emotion remains, some love of England dropped into a child’s ears by the cawing of rooks in an elm tree, by the splash of waves on a beach, or by English voices murmuring nursery rhymes, this drop of pure, if irrational, emotion she will make serve her to give to England first what she desires of peace and freedom for the whole world."

"That music is the spur to all licentiousness
the maestro doubts. His love unconsummated he embraces
only sound. And it dissolves.
And when the Angel asks him would he
make his peace with God the dying Janacek replies
but what is peace
and what is would
and what is god Janachkova."
