My coming to faith did not start with a leap but rather a series of staggers from what seemed like one safe place to another.

D. H. Lawrence
I just didn't want to get out there anymore; I didn't want to get back into what I call 'the swamp.'

George W. Bush

Some of the natural world is appealing, some of it is terrifying, and some of it grosses us out. Modern people don't want to be dropped naked into a swamp.
