Famous quotes containing the words john and/or walker:

    The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
    —Bishop John Spong (b. 1931)

    The clock runs down
    timeless and still.
    The days and nights turn hours to years
    and water in a gutter marks the circle of another world
    hating, resentful, and afraid
    stagnant, and green, and full of slimy things.
    —Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)
