Quote of the Moment

"The kingship of the intellect is the crucifixion of the body. The intellect is not subject to God unless the free will is subject to reason. It is hard to convey anything sublime to one who is still a beginner and an infant in stature. Woe to you, O city, when the king is a child."

- Isaac Of Ninevah
