Almost to the Part With the Pictures
"Human societies are based on the human tendency to want things, and are geared to satisfying those wants: possessions or facilities to bring ease and personal satisfaction. The results are frequently disappointing, and always terminate in the embarrassing non sequitur of death." Ha! Is that a downer? I don't mean to be a downer! I thought it was wittily put. It's from that 1,000-page history of Christianity by Diarmaid MacCulloch. I'm getting excited because I'm almost to the part with the pictures!
