What the heart loves, the will chooses, and the mind justifies.  — Thomas Cranmer

[We] know that sin possesses appalling force. We know that when we sin, we pervert, adulterate, and destroy good things. We create matrices and atmospheres of moral evil and bequeath them to our descendants. By habitual practice, we let loose a great, rolling momentum of moral and spiritual evil across generations. By doing such things, we involve ourselves deeply in what theologians call corruption. — Cornelius Plantinga, Not the Way Its Supposed to Be

We ourselves testify to our own injustice by how we always expect others to behave to us. The greatest liar in the world is still outraged by being lied to. No one is a moral relativist, subjectivist, or minimalist when it comes to others’ behavior to him, only him to others. — Peter Kreeft
