Charles David Miller
College of St. Scholastica
"[E]xistence must be so arranged that you do not with the aid of
certainty in knowledge slink out of revealing yourself in judging or in
the way you judge. When deception and truth are presented as two equal
possibilities in contrast to each other, the decision is whether there
is love or mistrust in you." -- Kierkegaard, _Works of Love_
