No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

(Dead Poets Society, 1989)

"The challenge posed by Job is not simply the problem of distributive justice: Why do the innocent suffer? It is the problem of nihilism: Why is it better that there should be a suffering creation than no creation at all? God might have made an earth in which there was creaturely flourishing and happiness without any possibility of suffering or death. How, then, can God proclaim the world he actually created to be “very good”? Job does not deny God’s existence on skeptical and evidential grounds but rather declares that the costs of creaturely existence are too high."

"Today the individual has become the highest form, and the greatest bane, of artistic creation. The smallest wound or pain of the ego is examined under a microscope as if it were of eternal importance. The artist considers his isolation, his subjectivity, his individualism almost holy. Thus we finally gather in one large pen, where we stand and bleat about our loneliness without listening to each other and without realizing that we are smothering each other to death. The individualists stare into each other’s eyes and yet deny each other’s existence. We walk in circles, so limited by our own anxieties that we can no longer distinguish between true and false, between the gangster’s whim and the purest ideal."

- Ingmar Bergman.

"There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more I am dissatisfied with it."
