At the moment of death there will appear to you, swifter than lightning, the luminous splendor of the colorless light of emptiness, and that will surround you on all sides. Terrified, you will flee from the radiance.

Recognize that the boundless light of this true reality is your own true self, and you shall be saved!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Architect: It is interesting reading your reactions. Your five predecessors were, by design, based on a similar predication: a contingent affirmation that was meant to create a profound attachment to the rest of your species, facilitating the function of the One. While the others experienced this in a general way, your experience is far more specific. Vis-à-vis: love.

Rev. Elton: Miss Woodhouse, please! Fate has left us alone for a reason.
Emma Woodhouse: Mr. Elton! Why do you seize my hand!
Rev. Elton: I do not seize your hand so much as the opportunity to tell you that I am hoping, no, fearing; ready to die if you refuse me!

Will: [Sean is going through Will's profile. Inside we see are pictures of Will after brutal assaults by his foster parents] You ever have any, uh, experience with that?
Sean: Twenty years of counseling, I've seen some pretty awful shit.
Will: No. I mean, have you ever had any experience with that?
Sean: Personally? Yeah. Yeah I have.
[Sean looks away for a moment]
Sean: I'm sure it ain't good.
Will: My father was an alcoholic. Mean fuckin' drunk. Used to come home hammered, looking to whale on someone. So I had to provoke him, so he wouldn't go after my mother and little brother. Interesting nights were when he wore his rings...
Will: He used to just put a belt, a stick, and a wrench on the kitchen table and say, "Choose."
Sean: Well, I gotta go with the belt there.
Will: I used to go with the wrench.
Sean: Why?
Will: Cause fuck him, that' why.
Sean: Your foster father?
Will: Yeah.
[pause]

Sean: Didn't know you had. Wanna talk about it?
[Will shakes his head, stares off]
Sean: Will, you see this, all this shit?
[Holds up the file, and drops it on his desk]
Sean: It's not your fault.

Air Conditioner:
You guys really have an attachment for that kid, don't you?



Blanky:
Yes. He was our master.



Air Conditioner:
Well that's real nice, and anyday now, he might come romping back, huh? He'll just come whistling through that door, and everything will be the same. Real peachy-keen-like.



Blanky:
Uh-huh.



Lampy:
It's a possibility.



Toaster:
Well, at least we try to be optimistic.



Air Conditioner:
[shouts] Optimistic? Somebody try to untie the knot in this guy's cord!



Kirby:
Why don't you just shut off?



Air Conditioner:
Oh, I'm really scared there, Kirby. What are you going to do, suck me to death?

Yoda:
Premonitions, premonitions. These visions you have...



Anakin Skywalker:
They are of pain, suffering. Death.



Yoda:
Yourself you speak of, or someone you know?



Anakin Skywalker:
Someone.



Yoda:
Close to you?



Anakin Skywalker:
Yes.



Yoda:
Careful you must be when sensing the future Anakin. The fear of loss is a path to the dark side.



Anakin Skywalker:
I won't let these visions come true, Master Yoda.



Yoda:
Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed that is.



Anakin Skywalker:
What must I do, Master Yoda?



Yoda:
Train yourself to let go... of everything you fear to lose.

[after emerging from a picture frame on Corey's dresser after her piggy bank is stolen] You wanna help track down the thief, Garfield?



Garfield:
[Garfield is a lamp] Hey, going through life with a blue lampshade is work enough. Wake me when the lasagna comes.



Gordon 'ALF' Shumway:
[yanks the lamp attachment off of Garfield] Let me rephrase that: do you wanna help, or do you wanna be lunch?



Garfield:
[salutes and climbs off the dresser] My luck to be stuck on a dresser with a pushy alien.

It is no hard matter to adhere to God while you are in the enjoyment of His comforts and consolations; but if you would prove your fidelity to Him, you must be willing to follow Him through the paths of dryness and desertion.

The reconciliation of man to God begins when God accepts the child of man, exactly as he is, into a relationship with himself -- "this grace wherein we stand". This He does for the sake of what man is to inherit, to become. And for the means, He gives him over to a Person, Christ, and a community, the Church; and in attachment to these, personality grows, freedom is attained, sin is forgiven, estrangement is ended, capacities for relationship extend. Reconciliation is the Spirit's liberating work of love, exercised thrMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Love, like truth and beauty, is concrete. Love is not fundamentally a sweet feeling; not, at heart, a matter of sentiment, attachment, or being "drawn toward." Love is active, effective, a matter of making reciprocal and mutually beneficial relation with one's friends and enemies. Love creates righteousness, or justice, here on earth. To make love is to make justice. As advocates and activists for justice know, loving involves struggle, resistance, risk.
