Melvin B. Tolson quotes

  • Television is a constant stream of fact, opinions, lies, moral dilemmas, plots: an infinitely complex and sophisticated torrent of information. How could it not make you cleverer? The only people who ever thought television rotted the brain and made kids dumb were those with a vested interest in other ways of learning, or those who were intellectually insecure, usually about books.

  • The safe place lies in obedience to God's Word, singleness of heart and holy vigilance.

  • Could man be drunk for ever       With liquor, love, or fights, Lief should I rouse at morning       And lief lie down of nights. But men at whiles are sober       And think by fits and starts, And if they think, they fasten       Their hands upon their hearts.

  • All knots that lovers tie Are tied to sever. Here shall your sweetheart lie, Untrue for ever.

  • The Bible says, 'The truth shall make you free.' But let's not forget it was Spiro Agnew who said that a good lie will keep you out of jail in the first place.

  • Wir tappen im Labyrinth unsers Lebenswandels und im Dunkel unserer Forschungen umher: helleAugenblicke erleuchten dabei wie Blitze unsernWeg. We grope about in the labyrinth of our life and in the obscurity of our investigations; bright moments illuminate our path like flashes of lightning.

  • A labyrinth, when it is big enough, is just the world.

  • God is not averse to deceit in a holy cause.

  • For the Lord touched all parts of creation, and freed and undeceived them all from every deceit.

  • As an audience member, I like watching Rupert as an actor when he's most playful, ... I think Rupert is really adept at comedy I think that's where his strength lies.
