April with C.S. Lewis
This post is part of myÂ seriesÂ throughÂ A Year with C.S. Lewis. Here are my favorite quotes from the assorted C.S. Lewis books that are covered in the month of April in the book.
Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual oneâ€”the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. It is simply no good trying to keep any thrill: that is the very worst thing you can do. Let the thrill goâ€”let it die awayâ€”go on through that period of death into the quieter interest and happiness that followâ€”and you will find you are living in a world of new thrills all the time. But if you decide to make thrills your regular diet and try to prolong them artificially, they will all get weaker and weaker, and fewer and fewer, and you will be a bored, disillusioned old man for the rest of your life. The Church will outlive the universe; in it the individual person will outlive the universe. Everything that is joined to the immortal head will share His immortality. No man who values originality will ever be original. But try to tell the truth as you see it, try to do any bit of work as well as it can be done for the workâ€™s sake, and what men call originality will come unsought. Even on that level, the submission of the individual to the function is already beginning to bring true personality to birth.
