The best of all impossible worlds...

"THE world is not to be justified as it is justified by the mechanical optimists; it is not to be justified as the best of all possible worlds... Its merit is precisely that none of us could have conceived such a thing; that we should have rejected the bare idea of it as miracle and unreason. It is the best of all impossible worlds." ( G.K. Chesterton: 'Charles Dickens.' )
