PIE IN THE SKY

From: Radio Replies, Vol. 1 P. 2

Q. There is no need to talk of future balancing of the Scales. Virtue is its own reward in this life, even as the wicked endure remorse.

A. That will not do. Consciousness of virtue is not much good to a man about to be wrongfully hanged and who cannot live to enjoy it. Nor does vice always bring proportionate remorse. Many are too hardened to experience deep remorse. There will be a levelling-up some day, after this life, and by God.
