Quote of the Week - C.S. Lewis


"There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilization—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."-- C.S. Lewis

As is the case with snowflakes, no two people are exactly alike.

Moreover, all human beings are mortal, but certain long-term relationships -- including those of our spouses and our true friends -- can be viewed as everlasting splendor.
