Your aim in life:
“Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.”
Is Christianity important?
Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.
Why should life have meaning?
If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be without meaning.
The safest road to hell:
The safest road to hell is the gradual one – the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.
We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
Danger in the middle years:
The long, dull, monotonous years of middle-aged prosperity or middle-aged adversity are excellent campaigning weather for the devil.C. S. Lewis
