Man is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness from which he emerges and the infinity in which he is engulfed.
— Blaise Pascal
A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said wouldn’t be a great moral teacher. He’d be either a lunatic – on a level with a man who says he’s a poached egg – or else he’d be the devil of hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was and is the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse… But don’t let us come up with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He hadn’t left that open to us. He didn’t intend to.
— C. S. Lewis
