    Slightly wrong – both take away all of those characteristics, thereby leaving human beings morally vacuous, in order that anything resembling moral thought will be in accordance with the needs of the powerful.

    Of course the above might just be the natural pessimist in me.

    I’ve long believed the following, but just now found the original quote:

    The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true.

    ~James Branch Cabell, The Silver Stallion, 1926
