Wolterstorff Sayings By John M. Owen IV: the United States has managed its cultural diversity through a collective determination among its people the United States has managed its cultural diversity through a collective determination among its people to be at once pluralistic and civil. As difficult as pluralism and civility are for both red and blue today, that is the way for America to be truest to itself. If secular and religious Americans can respect one another, avoid believing each other to be dangerous, and avoid being dangerous to each other - engage in what philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff calls dialogical pluralism - America also can set an example that is germane to the Middle East's ongoing struggle. — John M. Owen IV

Wolterstorff Sayings By Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz: It's not that Jackson had a "dark side," as his apologists rationalize and which all It's not that Jackson had a "dark side," as his apologists rationalize and which all human beings have, but rather that Jackson was the Dark Knight in the formation of the United States as a colonialist, imperialist democracy, a dynamic formation that continues to constitute the core of US patriotism. The most revered presidents - Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Wilson, both Roosevelts, Truman, Kennedy, Reagan, Clinton, Obama - have each advanced populist imperialism while gradually increasing inclusion of other groups beyond the core of descendants of old settlers into the ruling mythology. All the presidents after Jackson march in his footsteps. Consciously or not, they refer back to him on what is acceptable, how to reconcile democracy and genocide and characterize it as freedom for the people. — Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

Wolterstorff Sayings By Daniel Quinn: The world must live. We are only one species among billions. The gods don't love The world must live. We are only one species among billions. The gods don't love us any more than they love spiders or bears or whales or water lilies. — Daniel Quinn
Wolterstorff Sayings By Thomas S. Monson: A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth. The thoughts we think, the deeds we do, the lives we live not only influence the success of our earthly journey, they also mark the way to our eternal goals. — Thomas S. Monson

We had a blast recording that. — Joel McHale

Wolterstorff Sayings By Nicholas Wolterstorff: How is faith to endure, O God, when you allow all this scraping and tearing How is faith to endure, O God, when you allow all this scraping and tearing on us? You have allowed rivers of blood to flow, mountains of suffering to pile up, sobs to become humanity's song
all without lifting a finger that we could see. You have allowed bonds of love beyond number to be painfully snapped. If you have not abandoned us, explain yourself.
We strain to hear. But instead of hearing an answer we catch sight of God himself scraped and torn. Through our tears we see the tears of God. — Nicholas Wolterstorff
Wolterstorff Sayings By Shellen Lubin: Living with contradiction may be nothing new to humans, but acknowledging it, and accepting it Living with contradiction may be nothing new to humans, but acknowledging it, and accepting it are. Even the dictionary has trouble accepting a paradox, calling it 'two things that seem to be contradictory but may possibly be true.' But that's not a real paradox
a real paradox IS contradictory and IS true. So I don't even call them paradoxes anymore, I call them 'contradictory co-existing realities,' both in direct opposition to each other, both true at the same time. — Shellen Lubin
Wolterstorff Sayings By Michael J. Sullivan: Anthony Ryan is a new fantasy author destined to make his mark on the genre. Anthony Ryan is a new fantasy author destined to make his mark on the genre.

A coat that is not used the moths eat; and a Christian who is hung up so that he shall not be tempted, the moths eat him; and they have poor food at that. — Henry Ward Beecher
Wolterstorff Sayings By Nicholas Wolterstorff: Many are the scholars who make it their professional occupation to occupy themselves in this Many are the scholars who make it their professional occupation to occupy themselves in this towering edifice of culture, exploring its nook and crannies, developing their responses, making their contributions here and there, and helping to hand it on to succeeding generations. For some the temptation proves irresistible to go yet farther and make this the concern of their lives, letting society go its own sorry way while they lock themselves away in this abiding, socially transcendent cultural stronghold, acquiescing in society while pursuing Bildung. As Rotterdam burns, they study Sanskrit verb forms. — Nicholas Wolterstorff
