Everywhere I look, I see the evidence of a creator.
But I don't see it as religion,
which has cut Irish people in two.
I don't see Jesus Christ as being

and people devise a set of rules to fill the space.

The fact is that ours is the first generation that

Ethiopia didn't just blow my mind; it opened my mind.

his son would die.

The right to live like a human.
The right to live, period.

threat to human dignity and equality.
- Bono

I'm actually starting to like more and more people
who have convictions that are unpopular.
Now at what point does an unpopular conviction
interfere with your own human rights?
Forced female circumcision, for instance.
The Catholic Church's stance on contraception.
The list goes on. You know, God has some really weird kids,
and I find it hard to be in their company most of the time.
- Bono

You see, idealism detached from action is just a dream.
But idealism allied with pragmatism,
with rolling up your sleeves and making the world bend a bit,
is very exciting.
It's very real.
It's very strong.
- Bono

Africa is a continent in flames.
And deep down, if we really accepted that Africans were equal to us,
we would all do more to put the fire out.

Distance does not decide who is your brother and who is not.
The church is going to have to become the conscience
of the free market if it's to have any meaning in this world -
and stop being its apologist.

You see, Africa makes a fool of our idea of justice.
It makes a farce of our idea of equality.
It mocks our pieties.
It doubts our concern.
It questions our commitment.
Because there is no way we can look at what's happening in Africa,
and if we're honest, conclude that it would ever be
allowed to happen anywhere else.
- Bono

What turns me on about the digital age,

you needed a studio and a producer.
Now, you need a laptop.
- Bono

I don't think there's any artist of any value who doesn't
doubt what they're doing.

Doubt is the beginning of wisdom.
- Aristotle

Doubt is part of all religion.
All the religious thinkers were doubters.

and enters the field of mental certainty,
it becomes faith; and the universe is built on faith.
