Munchies for the Mind II

SIH-logo

So They Say:

Prayer

I throw myself down in my chamber, and I call in, and invite God, and his Angels thither, and when they are there, I neglect God and his Angels, for the noise of a fly, for the rattling of a coach, for the whining of a door.
John Donne (1572-1631)

Love

To fall in love is to create a religion that has a fallible god.
Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986)

ROMEO
What shall I swear by?
JULIET
Do not swear at all;
Or, if thou wilt, swear by thy gracious self,
Which is the god of my idolatry,
And I’ll believe thee.
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Austerity

The greater the pain, the greater the gain. (pleeon kopos, polu kentos)
Ignatius of Antioch (35-110)
