Quotes by C.S Lewis

“The sin of Satan- and what he has taught the human race: be their own masters- invent some sort of happiness for themselves outside God. And out of that hopeless attempt has come nearly all that we call human history- money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery- the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God that will make him happy.” (Mere Christianity, book 2 chap 3)
