John C. Polkinghorne
“If we are seeking to serve the God of truth then we should really welcome truth from whatever source it comes. We shouldn’t fear the truth. Some of it will be from science, obviously, but by no means all of it. It will sometimes by perplexing, how this bit of truth relates to that bit of truth; we know that within science itself often enough and we find it outside of science as well. The crucial thing is to be honest.”
John Polkinghorne

John Kaag
“TO BE IGNORANT OF WHAT OCCURRED before you were born is to remain always a child.”
John Kaag, Hiking with Nietzsche: On Becoming Who You Are

“Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”

John Kaag
“When one’s life is completely controlled by powerful masters, the discipline of self-denial gives a slave something to do on his own terms. Indeed, it becomes the one thing a slave accomplishes on his own behalf. The slave has few options at his disposal: he can will nothing and be wholly controlled by his master, or he can set his will in motion in the ongoing process of self-negation. The slave has a choice between nonaction, which would eventually bring about his demise, and action, willful but self-abnegating, which would hasten this eventuality. Nietzsche thinks the decision is all too obvious: humans would rather destroy themselves than embody the passivity of willing nothing at all.”
John Kaag, Hiking with Nietzsche: On Becoming Who You Are

“Terror has its uses. The questions that scare us the most are precisely the ones that deserve our full and immediate attention.”
John Kaag, Hiking with Nietzsche: On Becoming Who You Are
