The Quotable Mr. Warren

David Warren, writing another of those little gems he calls "Essays in Idleness"--

"The moral order is no more subject to revision than the observed physical laws. It might be explained differently, to one generation or another. But what is wrong is wrong at all times, no matter how many people are doing it; and what is right stays right, no matter how few. It is among the beliefs of post-modern nicompoopery that this order is subject to human choice. But attempts to alter what is founded in Nature will never end well."
