Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man. We say that people are proud of being rich, or clever, or good-looking, but they are not. They are proud of being richer, or cleverer, or better looking than others… C.S. Lewis
Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn.
Faith is the art of holding on to things in spite of your changing moods and circumstances. – CS Lewis
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.
