The strip had allowed him an illusion of eternity. Comics never end, no story is ever finished, four more blank white panels await the next installment. When he finally fell ill, the fantasy was irrevocably broken, and he discovered that he was a creature of time, ordinary after all.

─David Michaelis in his (very sad) biography of Peanuts cartoonist Charles Shulz, Schulz and Peanuts: A Biography

We live in a fearful and cowardly time. The crisis we face is not a crisis of clarity but a crisis of courage.
