Or rather that's what I re-tweeted last night, a quote from author Alain de Botton, and no sooner was it posted than someone called me out on it. "You don't really believe that, do you?" said Cowpi.

Weren't judas's and peter's sins roughly equal, and didn't one hope and one despair? Aren't the facts the same for all of us, that we are sinners and in light of that we either hope or despair?
