Couple of Quotes….

A couple of quotes from browsing today: 

This quote is one that we should all bear in mind – especially ‘believers’ who have not yet gone hardcore; this is what we’ve seen throughout history, and we’re still seeing in bloody political theatre with ISIS/ISIL in Iraq, and so on:

“… religious violence seldom limits itself to one target and expands to reach the maximum number of available victims.”

(from ‘The First Victims of the First Crusade’, Feb 13, 2015 – by Susan Jacoby (New York Times)   http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/15/opinion/sunday/the-first-victims-of-the-first-crusade.html

A little less grim, from Orson Welles:

“We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.”
 
And another:

“If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.”
