Line of the week

Ches at The Sensible Bond

Whereas once upon a time eternal destiny was the keystone of the push towards civilization (so we build cathedrals, live in monasteries and write Summa Theologicae), since the Englightenment that keystone has been replaced by meliorism (betterment) (so we build banks, live in sin and write self-help books).

Well said, Dr Sudlow.
