Tolerance kills brain cells

Found in comments at LGF (do not go to the link from there unless you are somehow able to squeeze several megatons of high explosive down the wire):

"The Church names the sixth Deadly Sin Acedia or Sloth. In the world it calls itself Tolerance; but in Hell it is called Despair. It is the sin which believes in nothing, cares for nothing, enjoys nothing, loves nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and only remains alive because there is nothing it would die for. We have known it far too well for many years. The only thing perhaps we have not known about it is that it is mortal sin."

Dorothy Sayers, "The Other Six Deadly Sins"
