QUOTE OF THE WEEK

from The Waldman Letter [#131]…

“The Downfall is partly the result of an inner weakness in Men – consequent, if you will, upon the first Fall, repented but not finally healed. Reward on earth is more dangerous for men than punishment! The Fall is achieved by the cunning of Sauron in exploiting this weakness. Its central theme is (inevitably, I think, in a story of Men) a Ban, or Prohibition.”
