“I decided as long as I'm going to hell, I might as well do it thoroughly.”
Stephenie Meyer, Twilight

Frederick Buechner
“God is the comic shepherd who gets more of a kick out of that one lost sheep once he finds it again than out of the ninety and nine who had the good sense not to get lost in the first place. God is the eccentric host who, when the country-club crowd all turned out to have other things more important to do than come live it up with him, goes out into the skid rows and soup kitchens and charity wards and brings home a freak show. The man with no legs who sells shoelaces at the corner. The old woman in the moth-eaten fur coat who makes her daily rounds of the garbage cans. The old wino with his pint in a brown paper bag. The pusher, the whore, the village idiot who stands at the blinker light waving his hand as the cars go by. They are seated at the damask-laid table in the great hall. The candles are all lit and the champagne glasses filled. At a sign from the host, the musicians in their gallery strike up "Amazing Grace.”
Frederick Buechner, Telling the Truth: The Gospel as Tragedy, Comedy, and Fairy Tale

Brian McGreevy
“Fear is a communicable disease; it comes out in the sweat and passes from host to host. Fear is an incendiary agent; it combusts with stupidity.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“You could also ask who’s in charge. Lots of people think, well, we’re humans; we’re the most intelligent and accomplished species; we’re in charge. Bacteria may have a different outlook: more bacteria live and work in one linear centimeter of your lower colon than all the humans who have ever lived. That’s what’s going on in your digestive tract right now. Are we in charge, or are we simply hosts for bacteria? It all depends on your outlook.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson, Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier

Toba Beta

“But you have said it too often, Mr. Benedict!" said Mrs. Perumal in an imperious tone that was quite out of character. "And if you continue in this vein, I'm afraid we'll be compelled to cut our visit short. Surely there are other establishments that would host an entire troup of guests - indefinitely and without reward - and not feel obliged to apologize for it!”
Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma

Tahir Shah

Caryll Houselander
“In many people Christ lives the life of the Host. Our life is a sacramental life.

This Host life is like the Advent life, like the life of the Child in the womb, the Child in the swaddling bands, the Christ in the tomb. It is a life of dependence upon creatures, of silence and secrecy, of hidden light. It is the life of a prisoner.”
Caryll Houselander, The Reed of God: A New Edition of a Spiritual Classic

“Beware of fame; for when they come for you, they come not to give, but for to gain.

Whoever is needed, wields the most power.

Whoever is needy, seeks to wield that power.”
Justin K. McFarlane Beau

“Most Religions are Social Clubs with expensive Entertainment Cheap Wine and Stale Crackers”
Stanley Victor Paskavich, Return to Stantasyland

Tracey Bond
“It's a toxic world out there folks, use caution when connecting online & offline. There's a darker side to going viral with success. My expert advice is that people innoculate their understanding with plenty of time-tested social research specifically regarding the authentic social, emotional intelligence and mature personality values of any circle. Look beyond their talk, uncover their stalk. If the mind is darkened with character disEASE, the behavior will symptomatically follow...those whose mentality becomes infected by their obvious blight, easily become the host targets of their contagion.”
Tracey Bond

Amit Kalantri

Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Tracey Bond
“Look beyond the talker, and uncover the stalker. If the mind is darkened with character disEASE, the behavior will symptomatically follow...those whose mentality becomes infected by their obvious blight, easily become the host targets of their contagion.”
Tracey Bond

Vincent Okay Nwachukwu
“Opportunities are never lost; they go to someone who’s awake and ready to host them attentively.”
Vincent Okay Nwachukwu, Weighty 'n' Worthy African Proverbs - Volume 1

“Hosting is more than just a "gig" for me... it's an opportunity to reach people where they are...make them think differently. Make them feel like they are unstoppable. If I reach one... just one...it is worth it!”
Liz Faublas
