"When Christ died, he died for you individually just as much as if you had been the only person in the world."

“No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good."
Mere Christianity (1952)

"We do not want merely to see beauty . . . We want something else which can hardly be put into words - to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it."

"God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing."
