A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on humanity, sin, wickedness, foolishness, set it right, and rationality

No man treats a motorcar as foolishly as he treats another human being. When the car will not go, he does not attribute its annoying behavior to sin; he does not say, 'You are a wicked motorcar, and I shall not give you any more petrol until you go.' He attempts to find out what is wrong and to set it right.

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

A Quote by David Brainerd on sin, death, despair, suffering, love, and mourning

David Brainerd-Sunday, april 4 1742

O my Blessed  God! let me climb up near to Him, and love, and long, and plead, and wrestle, and strech after Him, and for deliverence from the body of sin and death. Alas! my soul mourned to think i should ever lose sight of its Beloved again. O come, Lord Jesus, amen.

A Quote by Don Miguel Ruiz on impeccability and sin

Impeccability means "without sin."Impeccable comes from the Latin pecatus, which means "sin." The im in impeccable means "without," so impeccable means "without sin." Religion talks about sin and sinners, but let's understand what it really means to sin. A sin is anything that you do which goes against yourself.

A Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne on brotherhood, god, intellect, and sin

"What is the Unpardonable Sin?" asked the lime-burner; and then he shrank farther from his companion, trembling lest his question should be answered.

"It is a sin that grew within my own breast," replied Ethan Brand, standing erect, with a pride that distinguishes all enthusiasts of his stamp.  "A sin that grew nowhere else!  The sin of an intellect that triumphed over the sense of brotherhood with man and reverence for God, and sacrificed everything to its own mighty claims!"

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 - 1864)
