Awakened to the Lord – C.S. Lewis

CS Lewis“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy,
the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.
If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it,
that does not prove that the universe is a fraud.
Probably earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it,
but only to arouse it, to suggest the real thing” (C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, p. 120)…

I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country,
which I shall not find till after death…
I must make it the main object of life
to press on to that other country
and to help others do the same.”
