On “the infantile beginnings of small indulgences and small resentments”:
“Against all such pretty infants (the dears have such winning ways) the advice of the Psalm is the best. Knock the little bastards’ brains out.”
C. S. Lewis (Reflections on the Psalms)
In the words of my Australian friends*, “that’s haahhsh.” But I could probably stand to be a little more harsh with my infantile beginnings of small indulgences and small resentments.
*I don’t actually have any Australian friends.
