You can have as many as you wish myimages[1]="Why should a man be scorned, if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if, when he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls? The world outside has not become less real because the prisoner cannot see it. In using Escape in this way the critics have chosen the wrong word, and, what is more, they are confusing, not always by sincere error, the Escape of the Prisoner with the Flight of the Deserter. Just so a Party-spokesman might have labeled departure from the misery of the Fuhrer's or any other Reich and even criticism of it as treachery …. Not only do they confound the escape of the prisoner with the flight of the deserter; but they would seem to prefer the acquiescence of the 'quisling' to the resistance of the patriot. – J.R.R.Tolkien" myimages[2]="It is not the remembered but the forgotten past that enslaves us…To study the past does indeed liberate us from the present, from the idols of our own market-place. But I think it liberates us from the past too. I think no class of men are less enslaved to the past than historians. The unhistorical are usually, without knowing it, enslaved to a fairly recent past.. – C.S.Lewis" myimages[3]="The only palliative is to keep the clean sea breeze of the centuries blowing through our minds, and this can be done only by reading old books – C.S. Lewis" myimages[4]="For every one pupil who needs to be guarded from a weak excess of sensibility there are three who need to be awakened from the cold slumber of vulgarity. The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts. The right defense against false sentiments is to inculcate just sentiments. By starving the sensibility of our pupils we only make them easier prey to the propagandist when he comes. For the famished nature will be avenged and a heard heart is no infallible protection against a soft head. – C.S. Lewis" myimages[5]="Is it not the great defect of our education today – a defect traceable through all the disquieting symptoms of trouble that I have mentioned – that although we often succeed in teaching our pupils 'subjects,' we fail lamentably on the whole in teaching them how to thing: they learn everything, except the art of learning. – Dorothy Sayers" myimages[6]="If beauty is subjective then only the subject is left as the object of enjoyment. – Paul Munson & Joshua Drake" myimages[7]="The world expects us to be different, and this idea that you are going to win the world by showing that you are not very different from it…is basically wrong, not only theologically but even psychologically. – Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones" myimages[8]="All men seek happiness. This is without exception. Whatever different means they employ, they all tend to this end. The cause of some going to war, and of others avoiding it, is the same desire in both, attended with different views. The will never takes the least step but to this object. This is the motive of every action of every man, even of those who hang themselves. – Blaise Pascal" myimages[9]="Philosophers are the patriarchs of heresy. – Tertullian" myimages[10]="The unexamined life is not worth living for a human being. – Socrates" myimages[11]="A public school system, if it means the providing of free education for those who desire it, is a noteworthy and beneficent achievement of modern times; but when once it becomes monopolistic it is the most perfect instrument of tyranny which has yet been devised. Freedom of thought in the middle ages was combated by the Inquisition, but the modern method is far more effective. Place the lives of children in their formative years, despite the convictions of their parents, under the intimate control of experts appointed by the state, force them then to attend schools where the higher aspirations of humanity are crushed out, and where the mind is filled with the materialism of the day, and it is difficult to see how even the remnants of liberty can subsist. Such a tyranny, supported as it is by a perverse technique used as the instrument in destroying human souls, is certainly far more dangerous than the crude tyrannies of the past, which despite their weapons of fire and sword permitted thought at least to be free. – J. Gresham Machen" myimages[12]="No man that hath not the vitals of theology, is capable of going beyond a fool in philosophy. Theology must lay the foundation, and lead the way in all our studies. – Richard Baxter" myimages[13]="Telling the story of the Bible in comic strip form is undoubtedly efficacious. The only problem is in knowing if such a comic strip is still the word of God. – Jacques Ellul" var ry=Math.floor(Math.random()*myimages.length) if (ry==0) ry=1 document.write('
