‘The longest way round is the shortest way home’

“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 neighbor as myself: and I cannot learn to love my neighbor as myself till I learn to love God: and I cannot learn to love God except by LEARNING TO OBEY HIM.  The longest way round is the shortest way home.”

–C.S. Lewis

“Mere Christianity”
