reflections on reflections, part V

“For we are so little reconciled to time that we are even astonished at it. “How he’s grown!” we exclaim, “How time flies!” as though the universal form of our experience were again and again a novelty. It is as strange as if a fish were repeatedly surprised at the wetness of water. And that would be strange indeed; unless of course the fish were destined to become, one day, a land animal.”

C. S. Lewis (Reflections on the Psalms)

I’m destined to be a land animal. You know how I know? Because I hate being wet.

This concludes our little dip into Lewis’ book. How do you like this? I usually like to read quotes because they lead me to books, authors, and thoughts I might not have otherwise found. Is five posts on one book too much? I’m at your service.
