However wonderful…

However wonderful and beautiful and glorious things may be, they all perish. That is why, perhaps, the saddest of all failures in life is the failure of the philosopher who believes in worshipping goodness, beauty and truth; because there is no such thing as perfect goodness, there is no such thing as unalloyed beauty; there is an element of wrong and of sin and a lie in the highest truths. “Moth and rust doth corrupt.”

D Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Studies in the Sermon on the Mount, p. 361
