Throwing Things Away Into A Bottomless Pit Of Unfathomable Thanks

"The Return of the Prodigal Son" by Rembrandt

"It is the highest and holiest of the paradoxes that the man who really knows he cannot pay his debt will be forever paying it. He will be for ever giving back what he cannot give back, and what he cannot be expected to give back. He will be always throwing things away into a bottomless pit of unfathomable thanks."  — G. K. Chesterton, St. Francis of Assisi
