I have finally started reading "Witness" by Whittaker Chambers; it was a birthday gift from Anita and I'd not gotten around to starting it. Anita warned me it is a real page-turner, and perhaps the "fear of committment" kept the cover closed. Now it's been opened, and my eyes are a bit blurry, for the warning was true.

two gems which so far have taken up lodging:

In response to the apparent contradiction of "You need to think for yourself; God didn't create the world, it was created from gasses billions of years ago"

"The open mind is usually closed at one end."

and regarding the secular state:

"Man cannot organize the world for himself without God; without God man can only organize the world against man."
