“We have come from God and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth which is with God.”
J. R. R. Tolkien

“I know I’m supposed to hate humans but there’s something about them. They don’t just survive, they discover, they create... I mean, just look at what they do with food...”
The Rat Remy in Ratatouille

“Amusing title; Anyone Can Cook. What’s even more amusing is that Gusteau actually seems to believe it. I on the other hand take cooking seriously and no, I don’t think anyone can do it."
Anton Ego, l’inflexible cuisine critique, in Ratatouille

“He saw the skies open up. Something that looked like a huge blanket lowered by ropes at its four corners settled on the ground. Every kind of animal and reptile and bird you could think of was on it. Then a voice came: "Go to it, Peter—kill and eat." Peter said, "Oh, no, Lord. I've never so much as tasted food that was not kosher." The voice came a second time: "If God says it's okay, it's okay." This happened three times, and then the blanket was pulled back up into the skies.”
Acts 10, MSG

“For God does not show favoritism...”
The Apostle Paul in Romans 2:11, NIV
