Thought for the Day
 Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.

 C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)


Clive Staples Lewis in his study c. 1950

  1. FUNNY! A very great, very dear man casts Pearls of Profundity in our direction -- words that should encourage and cheer if rightly understood -- and he gets totally IGNORED.

    Typical, of course.

    The human race cannot possibly advance if we don't stop our ceaseless complaint and accusation, sit quietly. thoughtfully, and prayerfully instead, and LISTEN.

    Listen to the Music of the Spheres. Listen to people of proven capability who understand life better than most. and ABOVE ALL listen to voices that do everything in their power to lift us above the Brutal the Banal, the urge to affix BLAME, and to look Outward and upward -- away from SELF -- to find the BEAUTY that surrounds us, and permeates all honest, affectionate interaction everywhere.
