Superstition vs. rationality -- an interesting quote

"Superstition is an easy bed of dreams while rationality is a mountain to be climbed."

I found this line in an historical novel, "Death in Londinium" by John Drake (Kindle). It's spoken by a highly educated Greek slave in reaction to people's fear about the perceived magical powers of Druids in 1st century Britain.

A Google search came up blank, so it appears to be original. I think it's rather clever, so I wanted to share it.
