(FINALLY) Finished reading Mere Christianity this morning. Lewis ended the book with this:
Give up yourself, and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it. Submit to death, and death of your whole being in the end: submit with every fibre of your being, and you will find eternal life. Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will really be yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.
I shall hope that I will refuse a life of fleeting pleasures but seek towards living one of eternal reward. (:
Picked up a new book (which was free because it is such an old classic and i like free things too much) and read this one line:
“Nowadays people know the price of everything, and the value of nothing.”
