A Quote. Of Hell. Of Self.

For the one principle of hell is—“I am my own. I am my own king and my own subject. I am the centre from which go out my thoughts; I am the object and end of my thoughts; back upon me as the alpha and omega of life, my thoughts return.”

—George MacDonald, “Kingship”

One thought on “A Quote. Of Hell. Of Self.

  1. This quote reminds me of how self-adoration necessarily denies reality by assuming the independence of self rather than confess the absolute dependence of it upon the only self-existent God, who deserves my heart, mind, body and soul devotion.
