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

"Many people are deterred from seriously attempting Christian chastity because they think (before trying) that it is impossible. But when a thing has to be attempted, one must never think about possibility or impossibility. Faced with an optional question in an examination paper, one considers whether one can do it or not; faced with a compulsory question, one must do the best one can…people quite often do what seemed impossible before they did it. It is wonderful what you can do when you have to.”

--Mere Christianity, book 3, ch. 5
