Our Enlightened Society

“We are too much taken up with our own passions; and are too solicitous about transitory things.

“Seldom do we perfectly overcome so much as one vice, nor are we earnestly bent upon daily progress; therefore we remain cold and tepid.”

– Thomas a Kempis, “The Imitation of Christ,” Book I, Ch. 11, n. 2

 

“Is it possible that we ‘enlightened’ mortals of the 21st Century really don’t have any new ideas and brave new breakthroughs about what’s right, what’s best?

“Is it possible we overestimate our ‘progressive’ wisdom?

“Is it possible we don’t understand, comprehend, or express the true meaning of Love?”

– The Philosophy of Dave
