"Only a Christ could have conceived a Christ."

Joseph Parker: Ecce Deus

Swami Vivekananda once said that only another Vivekananda could have realised what this Vivekananda had done. Napoleon also said something in this vein. Alas, I too sail in their boat when I bury my head, with ceaselessly brooding disappointments, inside my palms.

If there is an iota of truth in this conviction-statement, then all the Christians in the world must needs muster together to defend themselves.

William Blake

True, absolutely true. Also, something more to add: God is God-Appointment, God is God-Enlightenment and God is God-Fulfilment.

"Christianity is a battle — not a dream."

Wendell Phillips

My divinity is a reality-beauty-dream and a reality-beauty-fragrance, and not a battlefield-reality.

Voltaire: Philosophical Dictionary

Voltaire, O mighty controversy-confusion-mind, your mind's Himalayan bravery and your life's weakness-slavery shall forever remain inseparable.

Mary Ellen Chase: New York Times

Absolutely true. Just a little to add: Christmas is humanity's dream-preparation-beauty and Divinity's Reality-Perfection-Fragrance.
