Silence is not the absence of something but the presence of everything.

“Melville hoped for a life that steered happily between two dangers: the monotheistic aspiration to universal validity, which leads to a culture of fanaticism and self-deceit, and the atheistic descent into nihilism, which leads to a culture of purposelessness and angst… the death of God, therefore, in Melville’s inspiring picture, leads not to a culture of meaninglessness but to a culture directed by a sense of many new possible and incommensurate meanings.”

–Sean D Kelly

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, A.G.!
