Reality, Temptation, & Nothing

Not everybody is able to see me ... I'm real and most earthlings can bear very little reality.

-Character of Proginoskes in A Wind in the Door (Crosswicks, 1973) by Madeleine L'Engle, p. 81.

The temptation ... is to stay an immature pleasure-seeker. When we seek our own pleasure as the ultimate good we place ourselves as the center of the universe ... nothing created is the center.

-Character of Proginoskes, p. 178.

When everything is nothing there will be no more war, no illness, no death. There will be no more poverty, no more pain, no more slums, no more starvation ...

-Character of Echthros-Mr. Jenkins in A Wind in the Door, p. 187.
