“’Paris, turn thine eyes to the south. There a templed city once stood, a living, breathing defiance to an inevitable death a death that came sooner than it thought, and overwhelmed it. The name of that city was Babylon. Well named was Babylon! Well named also Paris, for call to mind the fate of her sister gods.
‘They say to me: ‘What strange man are you, to wish us eternal sadness? Would you have us grieve while we starve? Do you not know that work is impossible with a heavy heart and cannot you see that we have lightened our hearts in order to take up the burden our dead brothers have left to us? What strange man are you?’
‘I say to them: ‘Europe, it seems to me that you are dancing more than you are working. Too many are living on the blood profits wrung from the slain.’
‘They say to me: ‘What do you want? We fought well and we won.’
‘I say to them: ‘So did Babylon. Yet, though she won, she lost. Guard ye that you do not share her fate.’”
The just read excerpt came from the book God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 64, which was written by Dr. George Carey.
