“You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life & death to you.
It is easy to say you believe a rope to be strong and sound as long as you are merely using it to cord a box.
But suppose you had to hang by that rope over a precipice.
Wouldn’t you then first discover how much you really trusted it?
The same with people.” - (C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed)
