Clockwork Orange

All the towering materialism which dominates the modern mind rests ultimately upon one assumption: a false assumption. It is supposed that if a thing goes on repeating itself it is probably dead; a piece of clockwork...if the universe were personal it would vary; if the sun were real it would dance.

For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to result in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, "Do it again" to the sun; and every even, "Do it again" to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old...

G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy (p60-61).
