„What life means to me is to put the content of Shelley into the form of Zola.“

Cosmopolitan (October 1906)
Kontextus: What life means to me is to put the content of Shelley into the form of Zola. The proletarian writer is a writer with a purpose; he thinks no more of "art for art's sake" than a man on a sinking ship thinks of painting a beautiful picture in the cabin; he thinks of getting ashore — and then there will be time enough for art.

„Religion is really an art form and a struggle to find value and meaning amid the ghastly tragedy of human life.“

—  Karen Armstrong author and comparative religion scholar from Great Britain 1944

Ode interview (2009)
Kontextus: A lot of the arguments about religion going on at the moment spring from a rather inept understanding of religious truth … Our notion changed during the early modern period when we became convinced that the only path to any kind of truth was reason. That works beautifully for science but doesn't work so well for the humanities. Religion is really an art form and a struggle to find value and meaning amid the ghastly tragedy of human life.
