To a radical, perpetually unnecessary world

Author: Robert Farrar Capon
Book: The Supper of the Lamb

"To a radical, perpetually unnecessary world; to the restoration of astonishment to the heart and mystery to the mind; to wine, because it is a gift we never expected; to mushroom and artichoke; for they are incredible legacies; to improbable acids and high alcohols, since we would hardly have thought of them ourselves; and to all being, because it is superfluous... We are free: nothing is needful, everything is for joy. Let the bookkeepers struggle with the balance sheets; it is the tippler who sees the untipped Hand. God is eccentric; He has loves, not reasons. Salute!"
