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

On the difference-- in God's economy-- between individuals and nations...

If individuals live only 70 years, then a state or a nation or a civilization, which may last 1000 years, is more important than an individual. But if Christianity is true, then the individual is not only more important, but incomparably more important, for he is everlasting and the life of a state or a civilization, compared with his, is only a moment."

--Mere Christianity, Book 3, chapter 1
