I’m a bit bored today and can’t think of anything else to write, so I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes.
“I have three things I’d like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don’t give a shit. What’s worse is that you’re more upset with the fact that I said shit than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night.” – Tony Campolo…author, speaker, activist and Baptist pastor
“You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image, when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” – Ann Lamott
“I once shot a man just to watch him die. Then I got distracted and missed it.” – Kids in the Hall
“There’s probably no One True Church. Now stop worrying and enjoy serving God.”- My friend Veronica Zundel, in response to an advertisement for atheism
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller
“Dear enemy-may the Lord hate you and all your kind, may you be turned orange in hue, and may your head fall off at an awkward moment.” – Edmund, BlackAdder
“Preach the gospel, always. If necessary, use words.” – St. Francis

“The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, and walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.” – Brennan Manning
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“You are the son of a clerk, I am the son of a count. I’m not supposed to want to be you.” – The Count of Monte Christo
“What the world needs now is another folk singer, like I need a hole in my head.” – Cracker
“Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
