Quotation"Entre l'homme, revêtu involontairement de sa liberte, et Dieu depouille volon-tairement de sa puissance, l'antagonisme est normal, l'attaque et la reistance s'equilibrent raisonnablement et ce perpetuel combat de la nature humaine contre Dieu est la fontaine jaillissante de l'inepuisable Douleur." L. Bloy. Dans les Tenèbres. 104. ["Between man, taking on his freedom against his will, and God, freely doffing his own power, the conflict is expected, the attack and the resistance are a match for each other, and this continual conflict of human nature against God is the abundant source of inexhaustible sorrow."]
