Quote – Tragedy as Columns of Type

“Inevitable? In hindsight tragedy always appears so. Somehow the concept of unavoidable destiny offers comfort to uniformed readers, those to whom tragedy is nothing more than oderly columns of black type.”

-J.R. Campbell “To One Table” in Professor Challenger: New Worlds. Lost Places (Edge, 2015).
