Hospitaler: I put no stock in religion. By the word religion, I've seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the 'will of God'.

By what you decide to do every day, you will be a good man - or not.

Heaven will take you back and look at you and say: Only one thing can make a soul complete and that thing is love.
