C.S. Lewis quote-of-the-week

“I do not succeed in keeping the Law of nature very well, and the moment anyone tells me I am not keeping it, there starts up in my mind a string of excuses as long as your arm...It is only our bad temper that we put down to being tired or worried or hungry; we put our good temper down to ourselves."

--Mere Christianity (book 1, ch. 1)

Poignant and revealing when we see this in ourselves; revealing and often amusing when we see this in others!
