What the world needs, I am ashamed to say, is Christian love.- Bertrand Russell, author of "Why I Am Not A Christian", atheist
What I envy most about you Christians is your forgiveness.- Marghanita Laski, author of "Ecstasy: a Study of Some Secular and Religious Experiences", atheist
I have nobody to forgive me.
My secret is that I need God- Douglas Coupland, author of "Life After God", secular/atheist
--- that I am sick and can no longer make it alone.
I need God to help me give, because I no longer seem to be capable of giving;
to help me be kind, as I no longer seem capable of kindness;
to help me love, as I seem beyond being able to love.
Here's hoping and praying that the world will receive what the world truly needs, in the coming days. God be with us all in 2010 :)
