Another Summer Day, Another Quintessential Quote

“What is the difference between Christ and Satan?”

“It is quite simple,” replied the Highlander. “Christ descended into hell, Satan fell into it.”

“Does it make much odds?” asked the free-thinker.

“It makes all the odds,” said the other. “One of them wanted to go up and went down; the other wanted to go down and went up. A god can be humble, a devil can only be humbled.”

-The Ball and the Cross
