Chief Orchardist

Denis Diderot (1713-1784), "Addition aux Pensées philosophiques," number 16, in his Oeuvres philosophiques, ed. Michel Delon (Paris: Gallimard, 2010), p. 40 (my translation):
The God of the Christians is a father who cares very much about his apples, and very little about his children.

Le Dieu des chrétiens est un père qui fait grand cas de ses pommes, et fort peu de ses enfants.
Thanks to Ian Jackson for the reference to Delon's edition.
