Famous quotes containing the words cross, holy, communities and/or order:

    Men are not to be told anything they might find too painful; the secret depths of human nature, the sordid physicalities, might overwhelm or damage them. For instance, men often faint at the sight of their own blood, to which they are not accustomed. For this reason you should never stand behind one in the line at the Red Cross donor clinic.
    Margaret Atwood (b. 1939)

    I’m a holy man minus the holiness.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    I am convinced, that if all men were to live as simply as I then did, thieving and robbery would be unknown. These take place only in communities where some have got more than is sufficient while others have not enough.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In a secular age, an authentic miracle must purport to be a hoax, in order to gain credit in the world.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
