"Sin, he reflected, is not what it is usually thought to be; it is not to steal and tell lies. Sin is for one man to walk brutally over the life of another and to be quite oblivious of the wounds he has left behind." -- Shusaku Endo (b. 1923-03-27, d. 1996-09-29), Silence (1966; English translation 1969) [I saw this flit past on FB just before the FB app crashed. I don't remember who posted it, but I caught enough words to Google the quotation.]
To my friends celebrating the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, may you find inspiration in Francis' life and works, and may your pets be well behaved today.
