“I enjoy books. No room is fit for occupation without a lining of books.”
Martin Booth, A Very Private Gentleman

“Catholicism - all the perversions of Christianity - is not a faith of love. It is a faith of fear. Obey, be good, toe the line, and heaven is yours, the first prize in the lottery of eternity. Disobey, react, cut the lifeline, and never-ceasing damnation is the booby prize. The dogma is, love the only god and you shall be safe. Fail in that love and he will not rescue you, not until you crawl and apologize and fawn before the altar. What kind of a religion demands such indignity?”
Martin Booth, A Very Private Gentleman

“Anything is possible where faith is concerned.”
Martin Booth
