The fundamental questions concerning God and people are as old as humanity. In this collection of quotations, Parrinder has drawn on all the great books of the world's religions and the words of prophets, scholars and mystics on the nature of the divine, ethics, puzzles of mortality, resurrection and life after death. Here, too, are the thoughts of the religious and irreligious from Plato on sexuality, Freud on the origins of religion, William Blake on angels, Omar Khayyam on fate, Confucius on poverty to Gandhi on violence.
