Quotes

You have to go through yesterday to be who you are today.

When you take things too seriously, you get old. You have to be silly. Whenever people say, “Hey, man, are you ever going to grow up?” That’s when you know you’re doing things right.

Letters of Note

Letters of note is a remarkable collection of — well — notes and letters, from famous people to a variety of recipients, from Elvis’ form letter to his fans when he was in the Army, to Marlon Brando’s affectionate letter to Tennessee Williams.  Originals are shown, but also transcriptions (which in some cases is a very good thing).

Be prepared to waste a lot of time.  But maybe it’s not such a waste, after all.

Quote of the Week:

Until the Vatican gets it through its thick skull that sexual abuse isn’t a sin but a crime, isn’t a moral weakness but a dangerous pathology, it’s going to continue putting up with predators within its ranks, thinking they can say they’re sorry and make it all go away. It will go on holding the devil responsible for its own worst acts. And it will continue condemning its youngest and most vulnerable members to hell on earth.

Quote:

“It’s enormously significant to me that the only description in the Bible about salvation is tied to one’s willingness to act on behalf of one’s fellow human beings. The ones who will be deprived of salvation–the sinners–are those who’ve turned away from their fellow man. People responsive to the great human condition, and who’ve tried to alleviate its misery–these will be the ones who join Christ in Paradise.”

~ Sen. Edward Kennedy, True Compass: A Memoir
