Like and equal are entirely different things! --Meg to IT/Charles Wallace
"The foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling , brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called, but God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the things which are mighty. And base things of the world, and things which despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are."
