Wikiquote meme and the problem of sin

Go to Wikiquote.
* Load a random page.
* Pick the third quote.
* That's the tagline on the movie poster about your life.

I might have known. I got John Charles Ryle, the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool Dome. Or maybe not Dome back then.

So long as you do not quarrel with sin, you will never be a truly happy person.

Um. Taking the negatives out seems to say that I have to quarrel with sin to be happy. Look, I never did like a fight, and anyway how do you put the boot into [looks up sins] wrath or envy or whatever? And what's acedia when it's at home? Actually I'm quite happy with my virtual pet sloth but I wouldn't mind kicking envy out the airlock. And I think Avon could go a few rounds with pride and vainglory.

Yes, it's an awkward tagline for a movie. Although watching you and Avon deal with envy, pride and vainglory does sound quite amusing...

Somehow I think Avon's got a right fight on his hands there. I don't envy him. ;-)

Heh. Sounds like you already won your fight, then!
