But they are afraid of life, constantly trampling on it, slandering it, destroying it, and training children still in their cradles for martyrdom. Observers have noted that the photos of terrorists taken a few hours before they made their attacks show people who are serene and at peace.

What a relief to know that we are not living in a little province of time but in the historic moment when time itself is going to be engulfed!


What presumption, and what naivite, to believe that we are the pinnacle of history! This self-abasement is a form of vainglory. If we can’t be the best, we can still be the worst.
