George Gordon Noel Byron, 6th Baron Byron

To care for the quarrels of the past, to identify oneself passionately with a cause that became, politically speaking, a losing cause with the birth of the modern world, is to experience a kind of straining against reality, a rebellious nonconformity that, again, is rare in America, where children are instructed in the virtues of the system they live under, as though history had achieved a happy ending in American civics.

Lenny Bruce

Look through the whole history of countries professing the Romish religion, and you will uniformly find the leaven of this besetting and accursed principle of action -- that the end will sanction any means. Samuel Taylor Coleridge

A little skill in antiquity inclines a man to Popery. Thomas Fuller

She thoroughly understands what no other Church has ever understood, how to deal with enthusiasts. Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay

Catholicism is not a soothing religion. It's a painful religion. We're all gluttons for punishment. Madonna

One cannot really be a Catholic and grown up. George Orwell

She had once been a Catholic, but discovering that priests were infinitely more attentive when she was in process of losing or regaining faith in Mother Church, she maintained an enchantingly wavering attitude.

Coming to Rome, much labor and little profit! The King whom you seek here, unless you bring Him with you will not find Him.
