A couple of quotes from browsing today:
This quote is one that we should all bear in mind - especially 'believers' who have not yet gone hardcore. This is what we're seeing (along with a bloody sort of political theatre) with ISIS/ISIL in Iraq:
"... religious violence seldom limits itself to one target and expands to reach the maximum number of available victims."
(from 'The First Victims of the First Crusade', Feb 13, 2015 - by Susan Jacoby (New York Times) http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/15/opinion/sunday/the-first-victims-of-the-first-crusade.html
On other topics, from Orson Welles:
"We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone."
"If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story."
