Diversion Quotations

The mind gets distracted in all sorts of ways. The heart is its own exclusive concern and diversion.
Malcolm de Chazal

Pop flies, in a sense, are just a diversion for a second baseman. Grounders are his stock trade.
Jackie Robinson

If our condition were truly happy, we would not seek diversion from it in order to make ourselves happy.
Blaise Pascal

I did not want to raise a genetically compromised child. I did not want my children to have to contend with the massive diversion of parental attention, and the consequences of being compelled to care for their brother after I died. I wanted a genetically perfect baby, and because that was something I could control, I chose to end his life.
Ayelet Waldman

Far too many people, especially within evangelicalism, think that the individual is all that matters, and that the corporate dimension is a distraction or diversion. Of course Christianity is deeply personal for every single Christian; nobody gets lost in the kingdom of God. But you can't play that off against the corporate dimension.
N. T. Wright
