Quotes Made at this Event

Dantes Inferno - Note: SHY spoke about the concept `life being like a mountain` and how this is the physical reality in the book.
Dantes Inferno - Note: Dante lumped `userer` (bankers) in with homosexuals - both are unnatural acts. Back when Christianity still forbade Interest.
Dantes Inferno - Note: The whole speech is an explanation of the book.
I asked my father (84), when you get past Lust. And he said, `About a half hour after the cadaver cools.` -Shaikh Hamza Yusuf
