You've got to really look after it and nurture it.

It's just that the translations have gone wrong.

I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right.
We're more popular than Jesus now;
I don't know which will go first - rock and roll or Christianity.
- John Lennon

He didn't come out of my belly, but my God,
I've made his bones, because I've attended to every meal,

The basic thing nobody asks is
