...it's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there...

Sunday Morning On Thursday

Here's a quote worth thinking about:

Man nurtures the suspicion that God, at the end of the day, takes something away from his life, that God is a competitor who limits our freedom and that we will be fully human only when we will have set him aside . . . There emerges in us the suspicion that the person who doesn't sin at all is basically a boring person, that something is lacking in his life, the dramatic dimension of being autonomous, that the freedom to say 'no' belongs to real human beings.

Overcome the temptation of a mediocre life, made of compromises with evil.

Aristotle says that leading a good life gives you much more freedom than if you ignore all the rules.

A rule breaker spends all his time dealing with crises caused by his misdeeds. He has no freedom to do anything else.
