Bad to worse.


“…it is questionable whether Christ departed from life with the words we find in the Holy Scriptures, those of Mathew and Mark, My God, my God, why hast Thous forsaken me, or those of Luke, Father, into Thine hand I commit my spirit, or those of John, It is fulfilled. What Christ really said, word of honor, as any man on the street will tell you, was, Good-bye, world, you’re going from bad to worse.”

Jose Saramago, The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis
