It is apparently an occupational disease, perhaps a fatal one, for the scientist to be too sanguine about eventual rule by reason. There is so little evidence...”mark clifton
Christmas in Bethlehem . The ancient dream: a cold, clear night made brilliant by a glorious star, the smell of incense , shepherds and wise men falling to their Knees in adoration of the sweet baby, the incarnation of perfect love .
Certain thoughts are prayers . There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its Knees.
