Famous quotes containing the words church and/or mission:

    What is a wife and what is a harlot? What is a church and what
    Is a theatre? are they two and not one? can they exist separate?
    Are not religion and politics the same thing? Brotherhood is religion,
    O demonstrations of reason dividing families in cruelty and pride!
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)
