The elegiac symmetry of the emerald chess board

"While science has nothing of value to say on the great and aching questions of life, death, love, and meaning, what the religious traditions of mankind have said forms a coherent body of thought. 
"The yearnings of the human soul are not in vain. There is a system of belief adequate to the complexity of experience.
"There is recompense for suffering. A principle beyond selfishness is at work in the cosmos.
"All will be well." 

- David Berlinski (who is wrong about everything else)
