Evelyn Waugh – Limbo is the place to be

Share this quote:
Limbo is the place. In Limbo one has natural happiness without the beatific vision; no harps; no communal order, but wine and conversation and imperfect, various humanity. Limbo for the unbaptized, for the pious heathen, the sincere skeptic.

Evelyn Waugh   (1903-1966)
