QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“You don’t see Nature till you believe in the Supernatural: don’t get the full, hot, salty tang of her except by contrast with the pure water from beyond the world. Those who mistake Nature for the All are just those who can never realise her as a particular creature with her own flamed, terrible, beautiful individuality.”

Letter to Dom Bede Griffiths OSB on 5/10/1945
(Published in The Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis, Volume II)
