If you have never read “Mere Christianity” you have missed a treat. C.S. Lewis made the most beautiful pictures with his words. His writings will make you wiser……..
“I pray because I can’t help myself. I pray because I am helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time-waking and sleeping. It does not change God- it changes me.’
“Being in Love” first moved them to promise fidelity: this quieter love enables them to keep the promise. It is on this love that the engine of marriage runs: being in love is the explosion that started it.
“If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.”
“Christianity, if false, is of no importance and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.”
and maybe my favorite of them all…..
“In friendship…we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few years’ difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another…the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting–any of these chances might have kept us apart. But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you,” can truly say to every group of Christian friends, “Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another.” The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.”
