Famous quotes containing the words theology and/or family:
“... the generation of the 20s was truly secular in that it still knew its theology and its varieties of religious experience. We are post-secular, inventing new faiths, without any sense of organizing truths. The truths we accept are so multiple that honesty becomes little more than a strategy by which you manage your tendencies toward duplicity.”
—Ann Douglas (b. 1942)
“If you understand why a monkey in a family is always mocked and harassed, you understand why monks are rejected by allboth old and young.”
—François Rabelais (14941553)
