Common-Sense Christianity

There are too many common sense Christians, afraid to spend themselves on anyone from whom they do not get visible results. They are ready with hard work for reform, they pour out good advice, they are proud to be realists who repudiate everything that seems to them impractical, including the poetry of Christ, but they have no use for those baffling human creatures who won’t — or can’t — play the game by their rules. These “realists” refuse to see that there are problems that can’t be solved, griefs that cannot be healed, conditions which cannot be cured.
— Caryll Houselander
