science fiction

the angel said to the doctor

Found on a bit of scrap paper:

"Son of my brethren, you are worthy of great honor and great pity, for you are a redoubtable champion of light, despite your own uncertainties. Your burden is a heavy one, and you shoulder it with little consideration for your own well-being. You know more of the boundaries of time and space and have danced along them more often and with more skill than any other mortal. For these things you deserve credit and respect.

"However: you are still only a mortal. No matter how familiar you become with the contours of reality, you cannot see it in its entirety. No one can, save He who created it."

Dunno where it came from or where it was going, but I kind of like it.
