"It has been said that faith dies the death of a thousand qualifications.
Faith inevitably meets the same fate when it is continually attenuated
with rambling, nondescript, and pretentious definitions. The liberating
truth, of course, is that the readiness with which the term faith evokes
sobering qualifications and erratic definitions betrays the superficial
manner in which it is used by religionists."

Daze of Humanity", "Faith" section, pp.130-135, MOPAH Publications]
