September 24, 2017
The difference between ordinary people and saints is not that saints fulfill the plain duties that ordinary men neglect. The things saints do have not usually occurred to ordinary people at all... "Gracious" conduct is like the work of an artist. It needs imagination and spontaneity. It is not the choice between presented alternatives but the creation of something new.
A.D. Lindsay, "The Two Moralities," quoted in Dorothy L. Sayers, "The Whimsical Christian", p. 131.
