Quote of the Week

"There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations - these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit - immortal horrors or everlasting splendours."

Amen, amen. Yes, quite similar quote from c.S. Lewis to the one I gave on Sunday.
