Excerpts from the Diary of the Late God

Towne, Anthony

Harper & Row, 1968

p. 17

“If I didn’t know I am perfect I would suspect I’ve been possessed by a demon. It’s this business of my ‘sake.’ What in limbo do they mean when they speak of God’s sake? Over and over again I hear them: ‘For God’s sake!’ What sake? I have no sake. Yet they invoke it so often I sometimes think they revere my sake more than me myself. I have had my entire estate mentioned item by item and have found no sake and nothing even resembling one.”
