"Every time we sin we cry “Crucify Him!” and yet, when we cry over sin, He would willingly be crucified again."

"The truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself."

"This world is not to be justified as it is justified by the mechanical optimists; it is not to be justified as the best of all possible worlds. Its merit is not that it is orderly and explicable; its merit is that it is wild and utterly unexplained. Its merit is precisely that none of us could have conceived such a thing, that we should have rejected the bare idea of it as miracle and unreason. It is the best of all impossible worlds."

— G.K. Chesterton
