Day 30

"But there is also the question on a far lower level: 'granted the quarrel...did you fight fair?' Or did we not quite unknowingly falsify the whole issue?...Did we pretend to be 'hurt' in our sensitive and tender feelings (fine natures like ours are so vulnerable) when envy, ungratified vanity, or thwarted self-will was our real trouble?"
--C.S. Lewis, Reflections on the Psalms
An interesting quote, eh? Quite practical!
"Better is a dry morsel with quietness,
Than a house full of feasting with strife."
Proverbs 17:1
And a freebie:
”Hospitality is a personal response to your own need to connect with other people. This need is at the core of what it means to be human. Your entire humanity, your identity itself, is wrapped up in your need to connect. The real question is not how dangerous the stranger is. The real question is how dangerous will I become if I don’t learn to be more open.”
