Quote du Jour: Eat Me!

from The Reed of God by Caryll Houselander:

I knew once the primmest old invalid lady who could well have offered her helplessness to God but had a grievance with Him because He had not permitted her to be eaten by a cannibal for the Faith; she could not accept herself as a sick woman but she would have achieved heroic virtue as a cutlet!

Seems quite clear to me...

this was the laugh of the day! I have this image of a lady in the shape of a Wienerschnitzel offering herself up to the guy upstairs :)
