I ordered a book called “Religion is for Fools” the other day, and I’ve just started reading it. It’s shaping up to be very good, and from what I’ve read so far I’d certainly recommend it!
Anyway, there’s a rather good quote in it that I’d like to share. The quote is actually taken from another book – a psychiatrist called James T. Fisher said in Case Book of a Psychiatrist:
If you were to take the sum total of all the authoritative articles ever written by the most qualified of psychologists and psychiatrists on the subject of mental hygiene – if you were to combine them, and refine them, and cleave out the excess verbiage – if you were to take the whole of the meat and none of the parsley and if you were to have these unadulterated bits of pure scientific knowledge concisely expressed by the most capable poets, you would have an awkward and incomplete summation of [Jesus’] Sermon on the Mount.
Happy Easter folks, hope you have a good one!
