Famous Spiritual Quotes>
- I have sinned
in thought, word, and deed and God forgive me; actually God forgave
me, but why would you?
- I didn't realize
that the biggest obstacle to political and social progress wasn't the
Free Masons, or the Establishment, or the boot heal of whatever you
consider the man to be, it was something much more subtle.
- I came away with
a clear sense of the difference music could make in my own life, in
other peoples lives if I did my job right.
- What does that
mean to betray the age? Well to me betraying the age means exposing
its conceits, its foibles, its phony moral certitudes.
- Every age has
its massive moral blind spots. We might not see them, but our children
- It might be something
as simple as our deep down refusal to believe that every human life
has equal worth. Could that be it?
- It questions our
pieties and our commitments because there's no way to look at what's
happening over there and it's effect on all of us and conclude that
we actually consider Africans as our equal before God. There is no chance.
- Except it isn't
the cause. Seven thousand Africans dying every day of preventable, treatable
disease like AIDS? That's not a cause. That's an emergency.
