Sunday Dispatch .381

"It is mostly features of this world from which we take our satisfactions. The love of family, the company of our friends, the feel of the wind on the face, the excitement of the printed page, the delights of color and form and sound; food, wine, sex. But there is that other life that only human beings experience, and in that life, and from that life, other pulsations are felt. They press upon us, in the Christian vision, one thing again and again, which is that God love us. The best way to put it is that God would give His life for us and, in Christ, did."

~William F. Buckley Jr., Nearer, My God: An Autobiography of Faith

"Half a year ago my wife died, technically from an infection, but manifestly, at least in part, from a body weakened by 60 years of nonstop smoking. I stayed off the cigarettes but went to the idiocy of cigars inhaled, and suffer now from emphysema, which seems determined to outpace heart disease as a human killer. Stick me in a confessional and ask the question: Sir, if you had the authority, would you forbid smoking in America? You'd get a solemn and contrite, Yes." - William F. Buckley, Jr., column on December 3, 2007
