Today's Nibley Quote

I have decided that I ought to include a daily Nibley quote to go along with the daily Maxwell quote. I begin with this one, from The World and the Prophets, CWHN 3:6:
A dead prophet the world dearly desires and warmly cherishes; he is a priceless tradition, a spiritual heritage, a beautiful memory. But woe to a living prophet! He shall be greeted with stones and catcalls even by pious people. The men who put the Apostles to death thought they were doing God a favor, and the Lord tells us with what reverence and devotion men adorn the tombs of the prophets whom they would kill if they were alive (Luke 11:47-48).
