“God is most high. To choose God, his light, his way his truth (all Christ), means everything flows from the highest point. To choose something lesser is to compel your life to flow from a lesser rise — a hill, rather than a mountain.”
Elizabeth Scalia

“I look at our modern mania for educational credentials as a kind of idol—a thing so burnished and glittery that sometimes the perfect candidate for a position is never seen because the required credential is hovering between him and Human Resources; and the idol—the thing that reflects our self-imaginings back to us—must be served. If a company sees itself as a bastion of certified intellectuals, it will seek out credentials that validate that idea, even if it means missing out on acquiring an autodidact in the process.”
Elizabeth Scalia, Strange Gods: Unmasking the Idols in Everyday Life

“We are in a place of deep cynicism, but that is rarely acknowledged, because so many of us residing within this disordered idol's shadow confuse cynicism with cleverness.”
Elizabeth Scalia, Strange Gods: Unmasking the Idols in Everyday Life
