Christianity is most admirably adapted to the training of slaves, to the perpetuation of a slave society; in short, to the very conditions confronting us to-day. … The rulers of the earth have realized long ago what potent poison inheres in the Christian religion. That is the reason they foster it; that is why they leave nothing undone to instill it into the blood of the people. They know only too well that the subtleness of the Christian teachings is a more powerful protection against rebellion and discontent than the club or the gun.
It was the most exclusive club in the world, in all the worlds, and this is a mighty pale statement to make about it. Let us emphasize that it was hard to get into.r. a. lafferty
Science is nothing but trained and organized common sense, differing from the latter onlyas a veteran may differ from a raw recruit: and its methods differ from those of common sense only as far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.
All I've got against it is that it takes you so far from the club house.Eric Robert Linklater
If you annoy the Hog-nosed Snake enough, he will roll over on his back and play dead. If you turn him right-side up , he will roll over to prove that he is dead. [Footnote:] While he is playing dead, you can go straight up to him and step on his head or smash him with a big club.will cuppy
Gary Neville is the club captain but has been injured for the best part of a year now - and Giggsy's taken on the mantlepiece.rio ferdinand
For me to be at a comedy club and flip out and say this crap, I'm deeply, deeply sorry.
I would have been honoured to play alongside Totti, as he is one of the best players in history. Any club would’ve been happy to have him in their squad.francesco totti
Pipe down Mr Indignation. We'll see what the viewers thought of your double standards, your indignation about me and the aplomb with which you become a lying plutocrat in your gentleman's club.George Galloway
Right after liberal Democrats, the most dangerous politicians are country club Republicans.thomas sowell
Let us be what we say we are: a fraternity, not a club, run by men, and not boys, and based on ideals, not expediency.Ralph Daniel
There's one thing for sure; you can't kill sixteen children in less than two minutes with a club, a knife or even a machete.
Doing linear scans over an associative array is like trying to club someone to death with a loaded Uzi.
Not far from the meeting's venue, at one of the famed Observatory club tea meetings, Fred once started a talk by saying, 'Oh, Ooh, basically a star is a pretty simple thing.' And from the back of the room was heard the voice of R. O. Redman, saying, 'Well, Fred, you'd look pretty simple too, from ten parsecs!'fred hoyle
Jerry Falwell knows who caused the terrorist attack on America: the ACLU. “The ACLU’s got to take a lot of blame for this,” he declared on the 700 club, because, he explained, the ACLU, abetted by the federal courts is responsible for “throwing God out of the public square (and) the public schools.”This is a familiar charge and a false one. God is still present in the public schools, where students are free to pray, alone or in groups, so long as their prayers aren’t officially sponsored and don’t infringe on anyone’s freedom not to pray.wendy kaminer

In the United States today, we have more than our share of the nattering nabobs of negativism. They have formed their own 4–H club the "hopeless, hysterical hypochondriacs of history".
