Quote of the Day

Blowhard, Esq. writes:

suttonhoohelmetSometimes at pagan shrines they vowed
offerings to idols, swore oaths
that the killer of souls might come to their aid
and save the people. That was their way,
their heathenish hope; deep in their hearts
they remembered hell.

Beowulf, translated by Seamus Heaney
