Various Observations

  • My greatest fear - the automatic Facebook status update, "Kevin O'Brien listened to Percy Faith on Spotify."

  • If you ever doubt that we're in need of salvation - if you ever start to think that mankind ain't so bad after all - if you ever begin to feel warm and fuzzy toward your neighbor, I have the cure for you. Spend some time on the internet.

  • The lower the self-esteem, the greater the ego.

  • If we had nothing else to go on but the existence of love, we would have evidence of God.

  • Living the Lie is devotion to Unreality. And perhaps the greatest form of hell is this - what we do to others, we are forced by some inexorable law to do to ourselves.  It's bad enough to lie to our neighbor: but in hell you'll find thousands of liars running around all day long lying to themselves, repeating the same empty lies over and over again.  In this debate, if you'll listen closely, you'll hear them murmur, "It's not really a lie and anyway it's OK to lie.  It's not really a lie and anyway it's OK to lie.  It's not really a lie and anyway it's OK to lie."  Yes, I get mad that they keep trying to fool to me - but imagine how they feel going around all day and night trying to fool themselves.
