    There are something like 7 words for love in Greek, and they aren't all feminine.

Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    There is a book called "The Bible As It Was" that delves into all sorts of various things that have been lost, mistranslated, and intentionally removed from the Bible, specifically the Old Testament. In there, there is reference to the passage "and we shall make man in our image" and how in Hebrew there is no usage of the royal "we", and thus it was meant in the plural. From there, it is pointed out that earlier there was mention of how God separated from himself his Wisdom (with the capital W), and Wisdom is refered to as "she" and in the feminine. The concept that Judaism and Christianity are actually duotheistic is pretty common, especially amongst Christian witches who use the God and Goddess approach, sort of like Wicca.
