H. Rider Haggard
“Man doeth this and doeth that from the good or evil of his heart; but he knows not to what end his sense doth prompt him; for when he strikes he is blind to where the blow shall fall, nor can he count the airy threads that weave the web of circumstance.

We owe our salvation to a cheap Egyptian tailor.”
Peter Kreeft
