"Can illumination be disappointing?"
Kerry Livgren


"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. ... But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things."
Henry David Thoreau


"Ye higher men, think ye that I am here to put right what ye have put wrong? Or that I wished henceforth to make snugger couches for you sufferers? Or show you restless, miswandering, misclimbing ones, new and easier footpaths? Nay! Nay! Three times Nay! Always more, always better ones of your type shall succumb,--for ye shall always have it worse and harder. Thus only groweth man aloft to the height where the lightning striketh and shattereth him: high enough for the lightning! Towards the few, the long, the remote go forth my soul and my seeking: of what account to me are your many little, short miseries! Ye do not yet suffer enough for me! For ye suffer from yourselves, ye have not yet suffered FROM MAN. Ye would lie if ye spake otherwise! None of you suffereth from what I have suffered. Unto these men of to-day will I not be LIGHT, nor be called light. THEM--will I blind: lightning of my wisdom! put out their eyes!"
Friedrich Nietzsche

Thus the wisdom of this mighty Superman, struggling to throw off the yoke of the bungled and botched weak ones who believe in equality, compassion, diligence, consideration; and hold down these great god-killing masters by the combined weight of our mass.


"For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe."

"For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom. But we preach Christ crucified. This is a stumblingblock to the Jews, to the Greeks foolishness, but to those called, both Jews and Greeks, this is Christ the power and wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men."

"For you see your calling brethren, how few wise or mighty or noble men after the flesh are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty, the despised things of the world, and even things which are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no flesh can boast in His presence."
I Corinthians 1:19-29


"The middle class, having failed to create a spiritual life of its own, investing everything in material expansion, faced disaster. Also, the world becoming disenchanted, the spirits and demons expelled from the air were now taken inside. Reason had swept and garnished the house, but the last state might be worse than the first."
Saul Bellow


“Ah, miserable thou, to whom Truth, in her first tides, bears nothing but wrecks!”
Herman Melville
