Quote: Wilbur Rees sarcastically writes in one of his books (to paraphrase):

• "I would like to buy £50 worth of God please,

• Not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep,

• But just enough to equal a cup of warm milk or a snooze in the sunshine.

• I don’t want enough of him to make me love a foreigner;

• Or change my views regarding asylum seekers.

• I want the ecstasy, not transformation;

• I want the warmth of the womb, not the new birth.

• I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack.

• I would like to buy £50 worth of God please."
