“Here, the churches seemed to shrink away into eroding corners. They seem to have ceased to be essential parts of American life. They no longer give life.

These in their massive manner of steel and stone say, Come unto me all ye who labour, and we will give you work.”
—Sean OCasey (18841964)

—Honoré De Balzac (17991850)
“You may drive a dog off the Kings armchair, and it will climb into the preachers pulpit; he views the world unmoved, unembarrassed, unabashed.”
