Of God and His Creatures

Aristotle, Eth. Nic. X, ix, 13: "If; as is commonly supposed, the gods have any care of men, we may well believe them to take delight in that which is best and most akin to themselves: . . . . the intellectual worker then will be best loved of heaven." This is not Christianity, but may be turned that way.
