Malcolm Muggeridge.jpg“Accumulating knowledge is a form of avarice and lends itself to another version of the Midas story …man [is] so avid for knowledge that everything that he touches turns to facts; his faith becomes theology; his love becomes lechery; his wisdom becomes science; pursuing meaning, he ignores truth.”
– Malcolm Muggeridge
