Worst line I've read lately

In an annoyingly-written but interesting article about Lincoln's depression and the role it played in his greatness, I came across
Man is born broken. He lives by mending. The grace of God is glue!
(Eugene O'Neill, The Great God Brown, 1926)

Maybe it wouldn't be so bad without the "!", but as the quote stands I want to ask, "Elmer's? Epoxy? Super?"
