“For you will certainly carry out God's purpose, however you act, but it makes a difference to you whether you serve like Judas or like John.” —C.S. Lewis

It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased. —C.S. Lewis

C. S. Lewis

The truth is of course that what one calls the interruptions are precisely one’s real life—the life God is sending one day by day. - C.S. Lewis

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” — C.S. Lewis
