Famous quotes containing the words theology and/or family:

    A theology whose god is a metaphor is wasting its time.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    —the dark ajar, the rocks breaking with light,
    and undisturbed, unbreathing flame,
    colorless, sparkless, freely fed on straw,
    and, lulled within, a family with pets,
    —and looked and looked our infant sight away.
    Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979)
