“But our idea is that the wolves should be fed and the sheep kept safe. ”

Ronald A. Knox
“There was a young man who said "God
Must find it exceedingly odd
To think that the tree
Should continue to be
When there's no one about in the quad."

"Dear Sir: Your astonishment's odd;
I am always about in the quad.
And that's why the tree
Will continue to be
Since observed by, Yours faithfully, God.”
Ronald A. Knox

Curtis Mayfield
“Educated fools; from uneducated schools.”
Curtis Mayfield

“If there's hell below, we're all gonna go.”
Curtis Mayfield

Ludwig Wittgenstein
“We cannot therefore say in logic: This and this there is in the world, that there is not.

For that would apparently presuppose that we exclude certain possibilities, and this cannot be the case since otherwise logic must get outside the limits of the world: that is, if it could consider these limits from the other side also.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus
