I’ve been reading C.S. Lewis lately, and most recently, finished the book Mere Christianity. C.S. Lewis is one of my favorite writers (isn’t he everyone’s?). I know. I’m one of those people who folds down the corner of the pages of a book where something strikes a chord with me. (Don’t tell my husband – this ruins the book, you know). But, this book, I’m telling you, I could literally fold the corner of every page. It’s like every sentence makes me view something in a different light, or think on an idea in a new way. Mere Christianity is nothing new, the transcripts were written in the 1940’s, and it is certainly a classic. But if you haven’t read it yet, I’d highly encourage you to.
“Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case, the man who turns back the soonest is the most progressive man.” -C.S. Lewis
