"A religion is really a moral code that is expressed through legends, myths, or any type of literary device in order to establish a system of beliefs, values, and rules with which to regulate a culture or a society" p. 145 Corelli

"Poetry is written with tears, fiction with blood, and history with invisible ink" p. 198 David

"Silence even makes idiots seem wise for a minute" p. 201 Corelli

"History is biology's dumping ground, Martin" p 201 Corelli

"The problem is that man is a moral animal abandoned in an amoral universe and condemned to a finite existence with no other purpose than to perpetuate the natural cycle of the species. It is impossible to survive in a prolonged state of reality, at least for a human being. We spend a good part of our lives dreaming, especially when we're awake" p 202-3 Corelli

"The incompetent always present themselves as experts, the cruel as pious, sinners as devout, usurers as benefactors, the small-minded as patriots, the arrogant as humble, the vulgar as elegant, and the feeble-minded as intellectual" p 203 Corelli

"It's curious how easy it is to tell a piece of paper what you don't dare say to someone's face" p. 348 Cristina
