Wisdom from Wittaker Chambers

Nov. 7 at 7:57am

I spent a sleepless night of worry for our nation.

One of my best insomnia rememdies is to put on a favorite audio book, usually Wittaker Chambers' Witness.  In most cases, the calm steady voice of the narrator takes my mind off whatever treadmill it happens to be on and lulls me to sleep.  But sometimes, like last night, it's not enough.

The upside is that I heard anew the beautiful and deep wisdom of his story, including countless gems like this one:

When man tried to organize society without God, he ends up organizing it against man.
