Peterson on Morality

The Christian life does not start with moral behavior. We don’t become good in order to get God…moral behavior provides forms for maturing in a resurrection life. Moral acts are art forms for arranging and giving expression to resurrection.”

Leonard Cohen On “Hallelujah”

From a fascinating article about Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah:

“This world is full of conflicts and full of things that cannot be reconciled, but there are moments when we can transcend the dualistic system and reconcile and embrace the whole mess, and that’s what I mean by ‘Hallelujah.’ That regardless of what the impossibility of the situation is, there is a moment when you open your mouth and you throw open your arms and you embrace the thing and you just say, ‘Hallelujah! Blessed is the name.'”

Brian Eno

Brian is a weird dude. But he says some interesting things. Here are a few examples:

“Luck is being ready.”

“For the world to be interesting, you have to be manipulating it all the time.”

“It’s not the destination that matters. It’s the change of scene.”
