And universities, too

Today is the birthday of Oral Roberts, born in 1918.

"Man is certainly stark mad. He cannot make a worm, and yet he will be making gods by dozens." -- Montaigne.
Be prepared for death at all times, Montaigne had said. The writer’s own brother had succumbed to a blow to the side of his head by a tennis ball. How had he put it? Death has us by the scruff of the neck at every moment.  --  Chapter 39, The Misforgotten.
