“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)

“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)
