I awakened this morning remembering the long study we did of Milton’s Paradise Lost with this thought.

The search for answers is not the same as the search for “truth”. Answers are the outcome of logical analysis. Truth is often a state of mind. Or as John Milton wrote in Paradise Lost, “The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make heaven of Hell, and a hell of Heaven.”

And therein lies our current tribal politics.
