"So far the most fascinating portions are the ones that concern doubt, not within the secular mind, but in the religious mind. Also, I knew that pagan rituals were adopted in Christian ones, but many Christian ideas, like God being an ultimate truth that one should strive for, are actually secular ones from Greek philosophy."

"Once again, wonderful, rich depiction of Alexander's life as a boy. Every moment with him (particularly the scenes with Hephaistion) demands to be savoured. All the relationships are richly observed and seem true enough to history (which I learn on Wikipedia)." Aug 05, 2014 08:41AM

Simone de Beauvoir
“In itself, homosexuality is as limiting as heterosexuality: the ideal should be to be capable of loving a woman or a man; either, a human being, without feeling fear, restraint, or obligation.”
Simone de Beauvoir

Michelangelo Buonarroti
“The greatest artist does not have any concept
Which a single piece of marble does not itself contain
Within its excess, though only
A hand that obeys the intellect can discover it.”
