“. . .the young man who rings the bell at the brothel is unconsciously looking for God.”
Bruce Marshall

“Credo a tutte quelle 'fandonie' sul battesimo, sulla purezza e sulla verginità della Madonna per la stessa ragione per la quale ci credono tutti gli altri cattolici di questo mondo: che cioè Dio ce le ha rivelate come fatti certi e che il non crederci equivarrebbe a dare a Dio del bugiardo. E lo faccio col più semplice dei metodi: prima di tutto con l'obbedienza perchè Dio ci comanda di credere a questa dottrina, e poi con la logica, perchè è logico pensare che Colui il quale ha messo le stelle al loro posto e fa frullare i pianeti e rimorchia le maree sia capace di superare le limitazioni che Egli stesso ha imposto ai loro movimenti. Colui che ha forgiato il Paradiso è padrone, mi sembra, di stabilire a quali condizioni ci si entra, e così Colui che ha escogitato la matematica della procreazione e della riproduzione è padrone di saltarne il primo gradino se così gli piace. E un Dio che ha fatto cose così eccelse coi fiori, con gli alberi, con la coda dei gattini, avrà bene la facoltà di darci la sua Carne da mangiare, e il suo Sangue da bere nell'Eucaristia. Il miracolo delle leggi e delle regole, infatti, non è né più né meno miracoloso dell'infrazione di queste leggi e di queste regole".”
Bruce Marshall, Il mondo, la carne e Padre Smith

“The colonel could swear with vehemence and originality when he was angry, spilling his oaths in a pretty pepper and disproving Talleyrand's definition of swearing as the means by which the inarticulate gave themselves the impression of eloquence.”
Bruce Marshall, Vespers in Vienna
