Quote of the Day (Graham Greene, on Pity and God’s Image)

“When you visualized a man or woman carefully, you could always begin to feel pity—that was a quality God’s image carried with it. When you saw the lines at the corners of the eyes, the shape of the mouth, how the hair grew, it was impossible to hate. Hate was just a failure of imagination.” —Graham Greene, The Power and the Glory (1940)
