„Against all the chains of facts I must have long arguments to bring; and the world's chaos requires an interpretation equally terrible.“

Light (1919), Ch. XX The Cult
Kontext: My spirit is no longer what it was. Vaguely I seek, everywhere. I must see things with all their consequences, and right to their source. Against all the chains of facts I must have long arguments to bring; and the world's chaos requires an interpretation equally terrible.

„Do we have all the hatred and all the aversion for the world which Our Lord requires, and which his example must inspire in us?“

—  Louis Tronson French Roman Catholic priest 1622 - 1700

Avons-nous pour le monde toute la haine et toute l'aversion que Notre Seigneur demande, et que nous doit inspirer son exemple?

„All this world confusion and chaos was inevitable and no one is to blame.“

—  Meher Baba Indian mystic 1894 - 1969

The Universal Message (1958)
Kontext: All this world confusion and chaos was inevitable and no one is to blame. What had to happen has happened; and what has to happen will happen. There was and is no way out except through my coming in your midst. I had to come, and I have come. I am the Ancient One.

„A saint does not dissolve the chaos; if he did the world would have changed long ago. I do not think that a saint dissolves the chaos even for himself, for there is something arrogant and warlike in the notion of a man setting the universe in order. It is a kind of balance that is his glory.“

—  Leonard Cohen, kniha Beautiful Losers

Beautiful Losers (1966)
Kontext: What is a saint? A saint is someone who has achieved a remote human possibility. It is impossible to say what that possibility is. I think it has something to do with the energy of love. Contact with this energy results in the exercise of a kind of balance in the chaos of existence. A saint does not dissolve the chaos; if he did the world would have changed long ago. I do not think that a saint dissolves the chaos even for himself, for there is something arrogant and warlike in the notion of a man setting the universe in order. It is a kind of balance that is his glory. He rides the drifts like an escaped ski. His course is the caress of the hill. His track is a drawing of the snow in a moment of its particular arrangement with wind and rock. Something in him so loves the world that he gives himself to the laws of gravity and chance. Far from flying with the angels, he traces with the fidelity of a seismograph needle the state of the solid bloody landscape. His house is dangerous and finite, but he is at home in the world. He can love the shape of human beings, the fine and twisted shapes of the heart. It is good to have among us such men, such balancing monsters of love.

„The proletarians have nothing to loose but their chains. They have a world to win.“

—  Karl Marx, kniha The Communist Manifesto

Section 4, paragraph 11 (last paragraph)

Varianta: The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.
WORKING MEN OF ALL COUNTRIES, UNITE!
Zdroj: The Communist Manifesto
Kontext: The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.
WORKING MEN OF ALL COUNTRIES, UNITE!

Fulton J. Sheen fotka

„The only argument the world will listen to now is the argument of personal holiness. It has heard all the rest and rejected them.“

—  Fulton J. Sheen Catholic bishop and television presenter 1895 - 1979

Retreat to Priests, Washington, D.C., p. 19, quoted in Bernard Hayes, C.R., To Live as Jesus Did (Locust Valley, N.Y.: Living Flame Press, 1981), p. 108. There is no book by Sheen with the title Retreat to Priests. Hayes is presumably quoting from a transcription of Sheen's 1974 retreat for priests of the Washington diocese. This was recorded on reel-to-reel tape and later issued in nine 60-minute tapes under the title Renewal and Reconciliation.
