    There is not a Musselman alive who would not imagine that he was performing an action pleasing to God and his Holy Prophet by exterminating every Christian on earth, while the Christians are scarcely more tolerant on their side.

    Ah, Christ, I love you rings to the wild sky
    And I must think a little of the past:
    When I was ten I told a stinking lie
    That got a black boy whipped....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    No one asks you to throw Mozart out of the window. Keep Mozart. Cherish him. Keep Moses too, and Buddha and Lao tse and Christ. Keep them in your heart. But make room for the others, the coming ones, the ones who are already scratching on the window-panes.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
