“We are born with two incurable diseases, life, from which we die, and hope, which says maybe death isn't the end.”
Andrew M. Greeley

“He returned her love. He lusted after her sweet young body. He wanted her the way he wanted to breathe the spring air.
He had never loved anyone before. He had not known even what this feeling for his tiny slave was.
Now in the crisp, clear spring sunlight, he knew.”
Andrew M. Greeley, The Magic Cup

“The only real Jesus is one who is larger tahn life, who escapes our categories, who eludes our attempts to reduce Him to manageable proportions so that we can claim him for our cause.”
Andrew M. Greeley
