A vagrant lays dying on a street corner. The government says to him: I’ll help you. The doctor says to him: I’ll cure you. His daughter says to him: I’ll give you money. His friend says to him: I’ll share my wine with you. And the Church says nothing to him. The Church is thinking about him.
The Christian’s decision to see the world as ugly and evil has made the world ugly and evil.[quoting Nietzsche]
If I do not please, I cannot seduce. If I do not seduce, I cannot influence. If I do not influence, I repent.
