Famous quotes containing the words church and/or doctor:
“I condemn Christianity. I raise against the Christian church the most terrible accusation that any accuser has ever uttered. It is to me the ultimate conceivable corruption. It has possessed the will to the final corruption that is even possible. The Christian church has left nothing untouched by its depravity: it has turned every value into a disvalue, every truth into a falsehood, every integrity into a vileness of the soul.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“The doctor will take you now. He is burly and clean;
Listening, like lover or worshiper, bends at your heart.”
—Robert Penn Warren (19051989)
