“All the dizzy and colossal things conceded depend upon one small thing withheld.  All the wild and whirling things that are let loose depend upon one things that is forbidden … the true citizen of fairyland is obeying something that he does not understand at all.  In the fairy tale an incomprehensible happiness rests upon an incomprehensible condition.  A box is opened, and all evils fly out.  A word is forgotten, and cities perish.  A lamp is lit, and love flies away.  A flower is plucked, and human lives are forfeited.  An apple is eaten, and hope of God is gone.”
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

I wish I had time to write my thoughts about this; they are many and shining.  But I must write elsewhere of other things, for now.  And so your own thoughts will have to suffice.
