And what about you? You must be some kind of beardless dwarf?" "I'm not a dwarf! I'm a girl. And actually I'm tallest in my class." "You mean to say, that you're a daughter of Eve?" "Well my mum's name is Helen..." "Y-yes, but, you are in fact... human?

God is not an optional extra, He's an absolute must!

A man may have to die for our country: but no man must, in any exclusive sense, live for his country. He who surrenders himself without reservation to the temporal claims of a nation, or a party, or a class is rendering to Caesar that which, of all things, most emphatically belongs to God: himself.

We are afraid that Heaven is a bribe, and that if we make it our goal we shall no longer be disinterested. It is not so. Heaven offers nothing that the mercenary soul can desire. It is safe to tell the pure in heart that they shall see God, for only the pure in heart want to. There are rewards that do not sully motives. A man's love for a woman is not mercenary because he wants to marry her, nor his love for poetry mercenary because he wants to read it, nor his love of exercise less disinterested because he wants to run and leap and walk. Love, by definition, seeks to enjoy its object.

You can’t go on “seeing through†things forever. The whole point of seeing through something is to see something through it. To “see through†all things is the same as not to see.

The longer we stay in Hell, the more we become attached to it.

If anyone would like to acquire humility, I can, I think, tell him the first step. The first step is to realize that one is proud. And a biggish step, too. At least, nothing whatever can be done before it. If you think you are not conceited, it means that you are very conceited indeed.
