    Exactly my point.

    Even in teaching the Gospel.

    That's why I quoted him, and that's why I requoted him, because if an atheist understands the Gospel, then shouldn't Christians?

    This quote is from a game called Civilization 6. It is a summary of Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics:

    "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."

    My kids to this day quote so many lines from that movie, and when they get started on a round, they can't stop laughing.

    When one of them was looking for chapstick, this invariably followed:

    "Can you bring me my chapstick?

    ... But my lips hurt real bad!"


    They watched it so many times... on the other hand, my sister sat through 15 minutes and got up and walked out of the theater. It's kind of polarizing that way.

    I forget who said it, but I have always liked the observation "to know, and not yet to do, is not yet to know."

    Another being "feed a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, feed him for a lifetime."

    Along its line, is one I came up with, over time, with application of the first of those two - the understanding that 'any success involving having known "the right people" is not really so much about "knowing the right people," rather, about knowing how to get to know such people - and that...is a learn-able skill.'

    What is the precise moment, in the life of a country, when tyranny takes hold?

    It rarely happens in an instant; it arrives like twilight, and, at first, the eyes adjust.

    Stay with the contradiction. If you stay, you will see the there is always something more than two opposing truths. The whole truth always includes a third part, which is the reconciliation. . . . Try to be quiet inside in the midst of the contradiction. Don't be impatient.
