"The beginning of Christendom is, strictly, at a point out of time. A metaphvsical trigonometry finds it among the spiritual Secrets, at the meeting of two heavenward lines, one drawn from Bethany along the Ascent of Messias, the other from Jerusalem against the Descent of the Paraclete. That measurement, the measurement of eternity in operation, of the bright cloud and the rushing wind, is, in effect, theology."

Charles Williams
Descent of the Dove

I believe tha if I wrote a paragraph like that, I would consider that I had achieved all I could and never write another word.
