Luther, tragic figure that he is, had more courage in his little finger than this guy has in his whole body.
Dick: “Do you really think there are no sins of intellect?”
Episcopal Ghost: “There are indeed, Dick. There is hide-bound prejudice, and intellectual dishonesty, and timidity and stagnation. But honest opinions fearlessly followed-they are not sins.”
Dick: “I know we used to talk that way. I did it too until the end of my life when I became what you call narrow. It all turns on what are honest opinions.”
Episcopal Ghost: “Mine certainly were. They were not only honest but heroic. I asserted them fearlessly. When the doctrine of the Resurrection ceased to commend itself to the critical faculties which God had given me, I openly rejected it. I preached my famous sermon. I defied the whole chapter. I took every risk.”
Dick: “What risk? What was at all likely to come of it except what actually came -popularity, sales for your books, invitations, and finally a bishopric?” – C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce
