love only that which they defend

“War must be, 
while we defend our lives 
against a destroyer 
who would devour all; 

but I do not love 
the bright sword for its sharpness, 
nor the arrow for its swiftness, 
nor the warrior for his glory. 
I love only that which they defend.” 

(J. R. R. Tolkien, 
Faramir in The Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers)

If they only had a brain, they would have a Mother

"It is not surprising 
that the same  
twisted logic 
that accepts the Bible, 
but not the infallible instrument 
(the Church) 
by which Christ 
gave the scriptures to us; 
produces also the 
prideful arrogance 
which ignores the immaculate person 
(Mary, Mother of God) 
by which the Father 
brought us 
the Son".
