The Readiness Is All: Faith, Science, Sports, and OSIRIS-REx — 2 Comments

  1. Charles Williams (the “Third Inkling”, alongside Tolkien and C.S. Lewis) wrote something rather apropos in his book Taliessin Through Logres, where the king’s poet and field commander appears to be delaying overlong to order a vital counterattack at Mount Badon. A knight nearby criticizes Taliessin calmly observing the slaughter around him, waiting for the right moment to strike. A second knight rebukes him, saying “Fool, all lies in a passion of patience – my lord’s rule.”

    I must have recited those lines to myself 10,000 times over the years since I’d first read them.
