Kick at the Darkness Till It Bleeds Daylight

One last post, then I'm taking the weekend off.

Some words to live by.

First, from Bruce Cockburn's "Lovers in a Dangerous Time":

Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight
Got to kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight

And this from "The Big Kahuna" (Courtesy of liquidthinking.org)

“It doesn't matter whether you're selling Jesus or Buddha or civil rights or 'How to Make Money in Real Estate With No Money Down.' That doesn't make you a human being; it makes you a marketing rep. If you want to talk to somebody honestly, as a human being, ask him about his kids. Find out what his dreams are - just to find out, for no other reason. Because as soon as you lay your hands on a conversation to steer it, it's not a conversation anymore; it's a pitch.” --Phil (played by Danny Devito)

That's what this religion writing gig's all about. Writing about the things that make us human.
