Quote of the Day (Graham Greene, on Truth and the Swings of the Mind)

“It's strange how the human mind swings back and forth, from one extreme to another. Does truth lie at some point of the pendulum's swing, at a point where it never rests, not in the dull perpendicular mean where it dangles in the end like a windless flag, but at an angle, nearer one extreme than another? If only a miracle could stop the pendulum at an angle of sixty degrees, one would believe the truth was there.” —English novelist (and Roman Catholic convert) Graham Greene (1904-1991), The End of the Affair (1951)
