What did you know of the darkness of god’s plan? Or how the flesh is so frail it is hardly more than a dream.
– Daniel Plainview
Did you think your song and dance and your superstition would help you, Eli? I am the Third Revelation! I am who the Lord has chosen!
The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth.
The hairs on your arm will stand up/At the terror in each sip and in each sup/Will you partake of that last offered cup/Or disappear into the potter’s ground?/When the man comes around.
Der große Haufe unseres Geschlechts ist dumm und boshaft. Vergebens suche ich in ihm jenes Ebenbild Gottes, von dem es nach der Versicherung der Theologen den Abdruck in sich tragen soll.
