Quote of the Week 4--Lewis

The process of living seems to consist in coming to realize truths so ancient and simple that, if stated, they sound like barren platitudes. They cannot sound otherwise to those who have not had the relevant experience: that is why there is no real teaching of such truths possible and every generation starts from scratch.

--C.S. Lewis

So true that every generation must "start from scratch." That's how we learn life lessons best, isn't it?
