— GK Chesterton, Collected Works, XXXV, p. 500
Excellent essay, esp. for his points on the specifically human things (compare to Lewis’s list of things we can only get as a result of free will), and his commentary on the modern mind, and criticism & creativity.
Because free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having.— CS Lewis, Mere Christianity (click here for full quote.)
Just a little flower, turning her face to find the sun. I don’t always feel his rays on me, but when I do, the warmth and the feeling is simply wonderful, and I never want to be in the shadows again. Isn’t he lovely?
