Loneliness

The Diagnosis

Excerpt from : Let Food Be Thy Gift Aren’t we tired of being diagnosed?

“Imitation, the imitation of Christ, is really the point from which the human race shrinks. The main difficulty lies here; here is where it is really decided whether or not one is willing to accept Christianity.
