    When we had to read it in High School we wasted nearly an entire week as the teacher tried to explain that to two particularly dense students
    Well, we know he had to deal with you, but who was your friend?

    Best beginning sentence in literature, and best ending sentence in literature, as well.

    I thought of the opening to A Tale of Two Cities in the thread awhile back about an author who was claiming that Proverbs contradicts itself because of back to back proverbs stating the opposite thing. Nobody says that Dickens is contradicting himself...
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

    I heard this in today's sermon, don't know who said it. It was quoted without a reference.

    "You don't reject scripture because it contradicts itself. You reject scripture because it contradicts you".

    I think that's true. But perhaps for another thread............

    Even though they are real cities, the novel is fictitious.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist
