„Spirit is never an object; nor a spiritual reality an objective one.“

—  Nikolai Berdyaev Russian philosopher 1874 - 1948

Quelle: Spirit and Reality (1946), p. 10
Kontext: Spirit is never an object; nor a spiritual reality an objective one. In the so-called objective world there's no such nature, thing, or objective reality as spirit. Hence it is easy to deny the reality of spirit. God is spirit because he is not object, because he is subject.

„Most of us have achieved levels of affluence and comfort unthought of two generations ago.
We've never had it so good, most of us.
Nor have we ever complained so bitterly about our problems.“

—  Mario Cuomo American politician, Governor of New York 1932 - 2015

Address at Iona College (1984)
Kontext: Most of us have achieved levels of affluence and comfort unthought of two generations ago.
We've never had it so good, most of us.
Nor have we ever complained so bitterly about our problems.
The closed circle of materialism is clear to us now — aspirations become wants, wants become needs, and self-gratification becomes a bottomless pit.
All around us we have seen success in the world's terms become ultimate and desperate failure. <!-- p. 934
