On Self-Exaltation

Anthony Esolen is often brilliant and always unambiguous.

"He who exalts himself shall be humbled", says Jesus, and we should think of it not as a prediction but as an inexorable law of being: when, in scorn for your place in the created order, you attempt to overleap what you are, you fall; man as a pretended god is a beast. - Anthony Esolen
