Wisdom on Wednesdays—Alone and a fool

St. Francis, etching, January 1926

“Christ was something more than an English gentleman.  The best people voted for his death.  He died alone and a fool.  No English gentleman fears death if it is done by the best people and gregariously.  What he really fears is making a fool of himself like St. Francis, and doing it alone.”  (1931)
