When you reach the thing you were desiring, if it doesn't satisfy you, it was not what you were desiring.

C. S. Lewis (1898 - 1963)

C. S. Lewis (1898 - 1963)
It is no good asking for a simple religion. Real things are not simple. They look simple, but they are not. The table I'm sitting at looks simple: but ask a scientist to tell you what it is really made of - all about the atoms and how the light waves rebound from them and hit my eye and what they do to my optic nerve and what it does to my brain - and, of course, you'll find that what we call 'seeing a table' lands you in mysteries and complications which you can hardly get to the end of. A child saying a child's prayer looks simple. And if you are content to stop there, well and good. But if you are not - and the modern world usually is not - if you want to go on and ask what is really happening - then you must be prepared for something difficult. If we ask for something more than simplicity, it is silly then to complain that the something is not more simple.

C. S. Lewis (1898 - 1963), from Mere Christianity
Nothing is beautiful except the abnormal; and nothing is abnormal until we have grasped the norm.

C. S. Lewis (1898 - 1963)
Whatever you do, He [God] will make good of it. But not the good He had prepared for you if you had obeyed Him.
