Sunday Quote: C.S. Lewis on God

"My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?"

- C.S. Lewis from Mere Christianity, chapter 6.

The man was brilliant. Ive never read such a profound writer who uses so many mono-syllabic words!

"The man was brilliant"

Indeed he was. And his writings make so much sense to me.

Epic quote btw.
