Quote of the day

The Suffrage of the Insufferable by Theodore Dalrymple

One of the merits of Christianity at its best is that it reconciles the infinite greatness of man with his infinite littleness. On the one hand man is created in the image of God, and each and every individual is unique as an object of God’s love and concern; on the other, he is as nothing by comparison with his maker.

If you take away the second consideration, what you get is unlimited self-conceit.  …if a man has no inner sense of limitation, no mere constitution is going to restrain him.
