"We enter church, and we have to say, 'We have erred and strayed from Thy
ways like lost sheep," when what we want to say is, "Why are we made to
err and stray like lost sheep?' Then we have to sing, 'My soul doth magnify
the Lord,' when what we want to sing is 'O that my soul could find some
Lord that it could magnify!'"
[Thomas Hardy (1840-1928), English novelist, poet. Note, Jan. 1907]
