I’ve been reading C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce. I know I quoted from it yesterday, but I found a couple more memorable quotes in it today, and would like to put them out there for you to ponder.
“There have been men before now who got so interested in proving the existence of god that they came to care nothing for God Himself… as if the good Lord had nothing to do but exist! There have been some who were so occupied in spreading Christianity that they never gave a thought to Christ. Man! Ye see it in smaller matters. Did ye never know a lover of books that with all his first editions and signed copies had lost the power to read them? Or an organizer of charities that had lost all love for the poor? It is the subtlest of all the snares.”
Further down the page this famous quote is also found:
“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.’ All that are in Hell, choose it. Without that self-choice there could be no Hell.”
