The most ridiculous thing a man can do is take credit for himself. Pride is a horrendous miscalculation. What did I do to get born? Did I create myself, with all of my gifts, complexities, and dispositions? I might as well try and take credit for the wind, or try and patent the sun in my name. Even the greatest among us is a painting first, before he is a painter. Only the fool can say in his heart, "there is no God!"

And we are all born fools.
