A couple of C.S. Lewis quotes…

Looking for another quote, I came across this:

The pleasure of novelty is by its very nature more subject than any other to the law of diminishing returns. And continued novelty costs money, so that the desire for it spells avarice or unhappiness or both. And again, the more rapacious this desire, the sooner it must eat up all the innocent sources of pleasure. – The Screwtape Letters

Just one of many profoundly insightful quotes to be found in that incredible book!
And this:

Obedience is the key to all doors; feelings come (or don’t come) and go as God pleases. We can’t produce them at will, and mustn’t try. – Letters of C.S. Lewis

Easy in concept – difficult in practice…
