Overheard Conversation

by Studentofthegun

It went something like this.

Man is naught but beast.  What influences the beast most of all, and before all others?  Fear.  And what two things does the beast fear most?  Being alone, surpassed only by the fear of dying.  Behold: the forces that drive the astronomer to his telescope, and the old lady to her church pew.

But who among us doesn’t have a soft spot for the cynic?
