C.S. Lewis

Courage is the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means, at the point of highest reality. A chastity of honesty or mercy which yields to danger will be chaste or honest or merciful only on conditions. - C.S. Lewis

The more often a man feels without acting, the less he'll be able to act. And in the long run, the less he'll be able to feel.  - C.S. Lewis

Very often what God first helps us towards is not the virtue itself but just this power of always trying again. - C.S. Lewis

The event of falling in love... in one high bound it has overleaped the massive wall of our selfhood; it has made appetite itself altruistic, tossed personal happiness aside as a triviality and planted the interests of another in the centre of our being. - C.S. Lewis
