C.S. Lewis puts it best.

“He that but looketh on a plate of ham and eggs to lust after it hath already committed breakfast with it in his heart”

One day.
I will stop lusting after KFC, Popeye's, and all the other harmful-yet-so-yummy pork fat related luxuries.
One day.

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”

Building a castle around our own heart makes it a fortress.
Giving it to God allows Him to protect it on our behalf.

“There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, "Thy will be done," and those to whom God says, "All right, then, have it your way”

I'm keeping watch on often I reply God with "But I..."
There is a fear that one day He'll tell me, "Fine then..." and then it'll be my undoing.

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”

Yeah! That means I was grown up all along! Haha.

“If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world”

That we are made for eternity is a beautiful truth.

“No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.”

But whereas we are given allowance to grief, there is no excuse for fear.

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."

C.S Lewis


He has a quite unique power to make words so attractive and fasinating.
