A Walker Percy Quote
This life is far too much trouble, far too strange, to arrive at the end of it and then to be asked what you make of it and have to answer "Scientific humanism." That won't do. A poor show. Life is a mystery, love is a delight. Therefore, I take it as axiomatic that one should settle for nothing less than the infinite mystery and the infinite delight, i.e., God....I refuse to settle for anything less.
From an article comparing Walker Percy and Martin Buber's thinking. I've been sick the past few days and reading more than usual. Am thinking I'd like to read some Walker Percy but am not sure where to start.
