„All those of you who rejoice in peace, now it is time to judge the truth“

—  Aurelius Augustinus early Christian theologian and philosopher 354 - 430
Context: All those of you who rejoice in peace, now it is time to judge the truth.... Undoubtedly in days gone by there were holy men as Scripture tells, For God stated that he left behind seven thousand men in safety, And there are many priests and kings who are righteous under the law, There you find so many of the prophets, and many of the people too. Tell me which of the righteous of that time claimed an altar for himself? That wicked nation perpetrated a very large number of crimes, They sacrificed to idols and may prophets were put to death, Yet not a single one of the righteous withdrew from unity. The righteous endured the unrighteous while waiting for the winnower: They all mingled in one temple but were not mingled in their hearts; They said such things against them yet they had a single altar. Early Christian Latin Poets, 2000, Carolinne White, Routledge, London, p. 55. http://books.google.com/books?id=MoI963yzTisC&pg=PA55

And weep until I smile“

—  Ray Bradbury American writer 1920 - 2012
Context: I am the dreamer and the doer I the hearer and the knower I the giver and the taker I the sword and the wound of sword. If this be true, then let sword fall free from hand. I embrace myself. I laugh until I weep And weep until I smile…
