..."All gods who receive homage are cruel. All gods dispense suffering without reason. Otherwise they would not be worshipped. Through indiscriminate suffering men know fear and fear is the most divine emotion. It is the stones for altars and the beginning of wisdom. Half gods are worshipped in wine and flowers. Real gods require blood."
This quote is taken from Chapter 16 of Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. I recommend this book to all y'all.
