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

One of my favorites to have on a course syllabus!

“Teachers will tell you that the laziest boy in the class is the one who works hardest in the end...when they are preparing for an exam, the lazy boy is doing hours and hours of miserable drudgery over things the other boy understands, and positively enjoys, in a few minutes. Laziness means more work in the long run.”

--Mere Christianity, book 4, ch. 8
