Primacy of God for Thought

"He who takes away the Word destroys speech."

Henri de Lubac, The Drama of Atheist Humanism, San Francisco: Ignatius, 1983, 71 n65 (quote from Paul Claudel, Correspondence de Paul Claudel et de Jacques Rivière, Paris:Plan-Nourrit, 1926, 25).

"Without God, even truth is an idol, even justice is an idol. Idols too pure and pale in face of the flesh-and-blood idols that are regaining their pedestals; ideals too abstract in the face of the great collective myths that are reawakening the strongest instincts--'de-germed wheat,' as they have been called." Ibid, 71.
