  • Allusions

    • Robin: You know, when it comes to religion I tend to agree with Clarence Darrow. Fear of God isn't the beginning of wisdom, it's the end.

      This is an allusion to Civil Liberties Defense Lawyer Clarence Darrow. The full quote is "The fear of God is not the beginning of wisdom. The fear of God is the death of wisdom. Skepticism and doubt lead to study and investigation, and investigation is the beginning of wisdom."
