The Outer Darkness

We make our fate in unmaking ourselves; that men, in defacing the image of God in themselves, construct for themselves a world of horror and dismay; that of the outer darkness our own deeds and character are the informing or inwardly creating cause; that if a man will not have God, he never can be rid of his weary and hateful self.

George Mac Donald

Letters from Hell, L. W. J. S., Richard Bentley & Son, London, 1889
