quote for the day

" . . . Men imagine gods to be born, and to have clothes  and voices and shapes like theirs . . . . Yea, the gods of the Ethiopians are black and flat nosed, the gods of the Thracians are red-haired and blue-eyed . . . . Yea, if oxen and horses and lions had hands, and could shape with their hands images as man do, horses would fashion their gods as horses, and oxen like oxen" - Xenophanes
