"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

First man ever to be photographed with 'bed hair'.

(Jean Nicolas) Arthur Rimbaud
French poet.

Predating the once popular fashion trend by well over a century.

I like him.  He led a 'libertine' life, but died a holy death.  I came across the following note on his demeanor while receiving the last rites:

The priest, shaken by so much reverence for God, administered the last rites. "I have never seen such strong faith", he said. - Source
