Not just ordinary

1 May 2022 | Humankind | 0 comments

There are no ordinary people.

You have never talked to a mere mortal.

Nations, cultures, arts, civilisations – these are mortal, as their life is to ours as the life of a gnat.

But it is immortals we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit –

Immortal horrors or everlasting splendours. 


C.S. Lewis (1893 – 1963), Screwtape Proposes a Toast.
