A few more Petersonisms:
♦ “There is no being without imperfection.”

♦ “To share does not mean to give away something you value and get nothing back. That is instead what every child who refuses to share fears it means. To share means, properly, to initiate the process of trade.”

♦ “You can’t make rules for the exceptional.”

♦ “The future is the place of all potential monsters.”

♦ “People do not care whether or not they succeed; they care about whether or not they fail.”

♦ “People aren’t after happiness, they’re after not hurting.”

♦ “Life is suffering. That’s clear. There is no more basic, irrefutable truth.”

♦ “You cannot be protected from the things that frighten you and hurt you, but if you identify with the part of your being that is responsible for transformation, then you are always the equal, or more than the equal of the things that frighten you.”


[Chaos is] what extends, eternally and without limit, beyond the boundaries of all states, all ideas, and all disciplines… It’s the foreigner, the stranger, the member of another gang, the rustle in the bushes… the hidden anger of your mother… Chaos is symbolically associated with the feminine… Order, by contrast, is explored territory. That’s the hundreds-of-millions-of-years-old hierarchy of place, position, and authority. That’s the structure of society. It’s the structure provided by biology, too…It’s the flag of the nation… It’s the greatness of tradition, the rows of desks in the school classroom, the trains that leave on time… In the domain of order, things behave as God intended.

HT: Ana at ChristCord

"An all loving, all powerful, all knowing Being could permit as much evil as He pleased without forfeiting His claim to being all loving, so long as for every evil state of affairs He permits there is an accompanying greater good."

-Alvin Plantinga
