On Time

Anthony Hopkins on time:

"For me time is God, God is time…. I'm fascinated by the fact that we can't grasp anything about time. The magical, supernatural force that is with us every second is time." —Cinema Blend

"For me time is God, God is time. It's an equation, like an Einstein equation." —Washington Square News

A Marxist on time:

"God demands scrutiny beyond his menacingly comic aspects. Primarily, the [Saramago] Gospel 's God is time, and not truth, the other attribute he asserts. Saramago, a Marxist (an eccentric one), and not a Christian, subverts St. Augustine on the theodicy of time. If time is God, then God can be forgiven nothing, and who would desire to forgive him anyway?"

Harold Bloom on José Saramago's The Gospel According to Jesus Christ  (1991). Saramago was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1998.
