“Wanna know the secret to nailing a great speech? It's simple--don't trust words.”
Stephen David Hurley, Cease & Desist

“There is no such thing as a moral or immoral book. Books are well-written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde

“In our deepest longings we hear echoes of God's longing for us. And the more we can follow these deep-down desires, those that God places within us for our happiness, the more joyful we will find ourselves.”
James Martin, Between Heaven and Mirth: Why Joy, Humor, and Laughter Are at the Heart of the Spiritual Life

“Wanna know the secret to nailing a great speech? It's simple--don't trust words.”
Stephen David Hurley, Cease & Desist

“How can you claim that religion has nothing to do with this? If there are miracles—” “Perhaps you should be talking to someone”
Robert J. Wiersema, Before I Wake

“But after seeing the people at the Barrett house, I couldn’t fool myself anymore. What Sherry had done was something of a different order altogether.”
Robert J. Wiersema, Before I Wake
