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

"The word Morality raises in a good many people's minds [the idea of] something that interferes, something that stops you having a good time. In reality, moral rules are directions for running the human machine. Every moral rule is there to prevent a breakdown, or a strain, or a friction, in the running of that machine. That is why these rules at first seem to be constantly interfering with our natural inclinations."

--Mere Christianity, Book 3, chapter 1
