|Their Royal I-nesses: the Clumps|
Who to vote for? It's like Sophie's choice, only the exact opposite. I tried to decide who was more despicable, and failed.
They are the King and Queen of Death.
The soul-crushing banality of venality.
The tombstone epitaph of America:
"For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" — Matthew 16:26
"I feel a strong desire to tell you — and I expect you feel a strong desire to tell me — which of these two errors is the worse. That is the devil getting at us. He always sends errors into the world in pairs — pairs of opposites. And he always encourages us to spend a lot of time thinking which is the worse. You see why, of course? He relies on your extra dislike of the one error to draw you gradually into the opposite one. But do not let us be fooled. We have to keep our eyes on the goal and go straight between both errors. We have no other concern than that with either of them." — C. S. Lewis
Thank you, Deborah Mary Newell Tornello, for the Lewis quote!
