C.S. Lewis quote of the week

"There is a difference between doing some particular just or temperate action and being a just or temperate man...a man who perseveres in doing just actions gets in the end a certain quality of character. Now it is that quality rather than the particular actions which we mean when we talk of a virtue."

--Mere Christianity, Book 3, chapter 2
