Three Quotes

"We run heedlessly into the abyss after putting something in front of us to stop us seeing it." -Blaise Pascal, Pensées, 166/183.

"Indeed, the safest road to Hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts." -C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters, Letter XII

"Diversion's greatest danger is that it acts like a sedative; it keeps us just content enough so that we don't make waves and seek a real cure. It deadens our spiritual nerves, it muffles our alarm system." -Peter Kreeft, Christianity for Modern Pagans, p. 186.
