"The commonest kind of trouble is that [our world] is nearly reasonable, but not quite. Life is not an illogicality; yet it is a trap for logicians. It looks just a little more mathematical and regular than it is; its exactitude is obvious, but its inexactitude is hidden."
"Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves."
"One of the things I like about atheists is they do “care” about religion. It could either be the biggest truths of their lives or the biggest falsehood (in as much as they seek intellectual honesty, and not antagonistic just for the sake of it). Compared to the other group who are simply indifferent to the really important questions in life."
"Atheism is the supreme example of faith… The truth is that the atmosphere of excitement by which the atheist lives, is an atmosphere of thrilled and shuttering theism, and not of atheism at all; it is an atmosphere of defiance and not of denial. Irreverence is a very servile parasite of reverence; and has starved with its starving lord. After this first fuss about the merely aesthetic effect of blasphemy, the whole thing vanishes into its own void."
"For in our time the blasphemies are threadbare. Pessimism is now patently, as it always was essentially, more commonplace than piety. Profanity is now more than an affectation- it is convention. The curse against God is Exercise I. in the primer of minor poetry."
