Quotable

You might be surprised to learn that much as I love love love C. S. Lewis, I have never read this, one of his most classic works.  Well, this quote might just spur me to action, because I love it! Whimsical and delightful and oh-so-true:

Now this is the first thing to get clear. What God begets is God; just as what man begets is man... That is why men are not Sons of God in the sense that Christ is... They are more like statues or pictures of God... This world is a great sculptor's shop. We are the statues and there is a rumour going round the shop that some of us are some day going to come to life.
--C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
