A celibate clergy is an especially good idea, because it tends to suppress any hereditary propensity toward fanaticism.
A secondhand wardrobe hand clothes doesn't make one an artist. Neither do a hair-trigger temper, melancholic nature, propensity for tears, hating your parents, or HIV.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

The notion that Western religions are more rigid than those of Asia is overdrawn. Ours is the most permissive society history has ever known - almost the only thing that is forbidden now is to forbid - and Asian teachers and their progeny play up to this propensity by soft-pedaling Hinduism's, Buddhism's, Sufism's rules.
The dog commends himself to our favor by affording play to our propensity for mastery.
