February 10

Man says to God: "O God, you have created the world.

But at any moment the world may collapse.

So I want to save the world.

You are the Creator and I am the Saviour."

God says: "Wonderful, my child, it is simply wonderful.

You save the world."

Lo, in a twinkling, the world devours man and his foolish pride.

Poor God, He has now to save the self-styled Saviour.

The world says to God: "Father, you are my Creator, you are my Protector, and you are my Transformer.

I need no human help.

Nor, I pray, impose human help upon me."

God smilingly says: "There is no such thing as human help. It is only the darkest futility of human stupidity."
