The Thing Itself

June 10, 2009


“The books or the music in which we thought the beauty was located will betray us if we trust in them. . . . For they are not the thing itself; they are only the scent of a flower we have not found, the echo of a tune we have not heard, news from a country we have never yet visited.” – C. S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory

    I was going to say that you can always trust Lewis to deliver…but thought that sentiment better suited to Someone else. :o)
