“An open mind, in questions that are not ultimate, is useful. But an open mind about the ultimate foundations either of Theoretical or of Practical Reason is idiocy.”

Wouldn’t it have been interesting to have a conversation with C.S. Lewis? That man had a way with words that absolutely amazes me. So often when I read something he wrote, I think “Yes, exactly! But I never thought of it in exactly those words!”
Let’s look him up when we get to Heaven and have a conversation with him, okay? 🙂
C.S. Lewis was so learned and wise and a godly man. I appreciate his work so much, but must confess that when reading one of his books, I find myself reading a paragraph over and over to understand it.
Have you seen the movie about him called “Shadowlands” (the one with Anthony Hopkins)? My favorite line is when Joy (Debra Winger) says to his snobbish friends at a party: “Are you trying to be offensive, or merely stupid? “.
