From the Wise Man to James Sparrow

“You are the benefactor of great kindness. And you have no idea how much goodness is lavished on the world by invisible hands. Small selfless deeds engender tremendous force against the darker powers. Great kindness pervades this world, struggling against pernicious selfishness and vulgar narcissism and the vicious streak that is smeared across each human heart—great bounding goodness is rampant and none of it is wasted. No, these small gifts of goodness –this is what saves the soul of man from despair, and that is what preserves humanity from the long fall from the precipice into the abyss.”

- Garrison Keillor, “A Christmas Blizzard”
