I suppose no one ever has faith enough.
– Philip Carey, in Somerset Maugham’s Of Human Bondage. p.55
Despite bombarding God with prayers, the Almighty fails to fix young Philip’s clubfoot leaving him very disappointed.
The sentence is a bitter, sarcastic indictment against God, against the doctrinaire belief that we must keep faith, against believing in miracles.
But the boy still does not give up on faith easily.
