One of my presents for Mother's Day was a book by Philip Yancey titled Disappointment with God. I will do a book review of it in a later post, but I am being exposed to T.S. Eliot by quite a few quotes of his in this book. Here is the one that hit me today:
"To believe in the supernatural is not simply to believe that after living a successful, material, and fairly virtuous life here one will continue to exist in the best-possible substitute for this world, or that after living a starved and stunted life here one will be compensated with all the good things one has gone without: it is to believe that the supernatural is the greatest reality here and now."
