Sorry, St. Ignatius [of Loyola] never said that (or these other famous
Jesuit quotes)


Not especially interesting, though the author does - as should we all - pay
homage* to Fred.

*As is the the case with "spade" and "shovel," the distinction between
"homage" and "hommage" has also pretty much disappeared.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
