The easiest thing in the world is to convince yourself that you’re right. As one grows old, it is easier still.

Robert Ludlum, The Bourne Identity

A Christian society is not going to arrive until most of us really want it: and we are not going to want it until we become fully Christian. I may repeat “Do as you would be done by” till I am black in the face, but I cannot really carry it out till I love my neighbour as myself: and I cannot learn to love my neighbour as myself till I learn to love God: and I cannot learn to love God except by learning to obey Him. And so, as I warned you, we are driven on to something more inward – driven on from social matters to religious matters

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
