Quote of the day

Charlemagne:
And given that the society that I inhabit, the prosperous, western European city of Brussels, is an almost wholly secular society, I wonder if the environment has filled some gap that exists in the human frame which Americans fill with faith in an actual religion.

I've long thought something similar. It's similar to the quixotic quest among many secular moderns for authenticity in exotic and indigenous (often romanticized) cultures.
