The question is whether or not you choose to disturb the world around you, or if you choose to let it go on as if you had never arrived.

  --Ann Patchett, writer (b.1963)

(195:6.9) The materialistic sociologist of today surveys a community, makes a report thereon, and leaves the people as he found them. Nineteen hundred years ago, unlearned Galileans surveyed Jesus giving his life as a spiritual contribution to man's inner experience and then went out and turned the whole Roman Empire upside down.
