„Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.“

—  Sojourner Truth, Context: That little man in black there, he says women can't have as much rights as men, 'cause Jesus Christ wasn't a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.

„Man is a dream about a shadow. But when some splendour falls upon him from God, a glory comes to him and his life is sweet.“

—  R.S. Thomas Welsh poet 1913 - 2000
Context: On seeing his shadow fall on such ancient rocks, he had to question himself in a different context and ask the same old question as before, "Who am I?", and the answer now came more emphatically than ever before, "No-one." But a no-one with a crown of light about his head. He would remember a verse from Pindar: "Man is a dream about a shadow. But when some splendour falls upon him from God, a glory comes to him and his life is sweet." Neb [No-one] (1985)
