“Lucifer Protests / Stay Away From the Door / Heroes and Fools / Roller-Coaster”


“Lucifer protests he was never to blame for inducing anyone to sin, and that he’s never had an interest in owning souls:  ‘They die, and they come here – having transgressed against what they believed to be right – and expect us to fulfill their desire for pain and retribution.  I don’t make them come here…  I need no souls.  And how can anyone own a soul?  No, they belong to themselves.  They just hate to have to face up to it.”    (Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 4: Season of Mists)



“Some people stay far away from the door if there’s a chance of it opening up. They hear a voice in the hall outside and hope that it just passes by.”   (Billy Joel)



“If one of us could ascend to the heavenly realm and for a few hours accompany the Divine on His daily rounds, he would see below millions of his fellow humans busily hurling themselves into the passions, sports, and actions of the moment — all the while seemingly oblivious of those around him.  But if our observer had the power … he would also feel and sense, pulsing through and vibrating from every one of us here below a desperate and unending plea, ‘Notice me! I want to be known, admired, and loved by the whole world!’  And it is this; this glorious weakness, this dependence of us on each other that makes some of us heroes, and some of us fools – and most of us heroes and fools at the same time!”   (Rev. Michael Burry)



“Prayer doesn’t change things.  It changes people and they change things.”   (Author Unknown)



“Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road.”   (Dag Hammarskjold)



“We grow great by dreams.  All big men are dreamers.  They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening.  Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.”   (Woodrow Wilson)   



“Life is a roller-coaster.  Try to eat a light lunch.”   (David A. Schmaltz)
