H/T: Ann Agent--"Some, who do not know either the Bible or human nature, may see in the orgy of the Golden Calf only a riot of Hollywood's imaginations -- but those who have eyes to see will see in it the awful lesson of how quickly a nation or a man can fall, without God's law.
"If man will not be ruled by God, he will certainly be ruled by tyrants -- and there is no tyranny more imperious or more devastating than man's own selfishness, without the law.
"We cannot break the Ten Commandments. We can only break ourselves against them -- or else, by keeping them, rise through them to the fulness of freedom under God. God means us to be free. With divine daring, He gave us the power of choice."
~Cecil B. DeMille, Commencement Address, BYU Speeches of the Year, Provo 31 May 1957
