Quotable: C.S. Lewis

We–or at least I–shall not be able to adore God on the highest occasions if we have learned no habit of doing so on the lowest. At best, our faith and reason will tell us that He is adorable, but we shall not have found Him so, not have “tasted and seen.” Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are “patches of godlight” in the woods of experience.

–C.S. Lewis, Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer
