43 – Quotation by Lewis Black

Lewis Black

The Catholics have it right. I love what they do. That whole “the pope’s infallible” thing is tremendous. Let’s face facts: If you took somebody with no religious leanings whatsoever and locked that person in a psych ward with nobody around and no stimuli, the Catholic church is exactly what he’d come up with. “Listen to this. There’s this old guy in a dress, see? He wears all these great costumes and wherever he says about anything from birth control to what to watch on television, that’s it, ’cause pope knows best. He can’t lift his head up, but, fuck, he’s a genius.

54 – Quote by Ulysses S. Grant

Ulysses-S-Grant

The expression of these kindly feelings were not restricted to a section of the country, nor to a division of the people. They came from individual citizens of all nationalities; from all denominations – the Protestant, the Catholic, and the Jew; and from the various societies of the land – scientific, educational, religious or otherwise. Politics did not enter into the matter at all.

Ulysses S. Grant

12 – Quote by Woodrow Wilson

Woodrow Wilson

Nothing is easier than to falsify the past. Lifeless instruction will do it. If you rob it of vitality, stiffen it with pedantry, sophisticate it with argument, chill it with unsympathetic comment, you render it as dead as any academic exercise. The safest way in all ordinary seasons is to let it speak for itself: resort to its records, listen to its poets and to its masters in the humbler art of prose. Your real and proper object, after all, is not to expound, but to realize it, consort with it, and make your spirit kin with it, so that you may never shake the sense of obligation off. In short, I believe that the catholic study of the world’s literature as a record of spirit is the right preparation for leadership in the world’s affairs, if you undertake it like a man and not like a pedant.

Woodrow Wilson

65 – Quote by John C. Reilly

John C. Reilly

I grew up a Catholic and went regularly to church. When I made the decision to make acting my vocation, I used to joke that the theatre is my church now. But, especially doing live theatre, where you have to do eight performances in six days, you really have to kind of live like a monk. Then you go to this big, dark place and experience emotions, and it’s very spiritual.

John C. Reilly

A Quote Spoken from Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler

While we destroyed the Centre Party, we have not only brought thousands of priests back into the Church, but to millions of respectable people we have restored their faith in their religion and in their priests. The union of the Evangelical Church in a single Church for the whole Reich, the Concordat with the Catholic Church, these are but milestones on the road, which leads to the establishment of a useful relation and a useful co operation between the Reich and the two Confessions.
