"Modern man is deeply plagued by the question, 'Where do love and communication come from?' Many artists who pour themselves out in their paintngs, who paint bleak messages on canvas, many singers, many poets and dramatists are expressing the blackness of the fact that while everything hangs upon love and communication , they don't know where these come from and they don't know what they mean. The biblical answer is quite otherwise: something was there before creation. God was there; love and communication were there; and therefore, prior even to Genesis 1:1, love and communication are intrinsic to what has always been." Frances Schaeffer, "Genesis in Space and Time", p12, 1972
"What is man; what are we? We are specks of dust that have settled in the night on the map of the world." Winston Churchill, to Roosevelt and Stalin, 194?
"What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit him? For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and you have crowned him with glory and honour." The Bible, Psalm 8, verses 4 & 5
"Slime + time + chance can never create any meaning to life: our art and science, longings and loves, cannot be explained that way"
