On Belief and Justice

On my first day of law school, my professor says two things. First was: “From this day forward, when your mother tells you she loves you – get a second opinion. If you want justice, go to a whorehouse; if you want to get fucked, go to court.” Richard Gere as Martin Vail, Primal Fear

On Beauty

Beauty is truth, truth beauty–that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know. John Keats, Ode on a Grecian Urn

On Concealment and Discovery

Proverbs 25:2 has always resonated with me in my academic pursuits: “It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them.”

Romans 11:34,36 (NLT) expands this marvelously: “For who can know what the Lord is thinking? […] For everything comes from Him; everything exist by His power and is intended for His glory.”

The Greek text of Isaiah 40:13, propounds, “Who can know the Lord’s thoughts?” and is echoed in 1 Corinthians 2:16: “For, ‘Who can know the Lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him?’ But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.”
