“Our excesses are the best clues to our own poverty, and our best way of concealing it from ourselves.”

Adam Philips

“If we insist on keeping Hell (or even Earth), we shall not see Heaven: if we accept Heaven we shall not be able to retain even the smallest and most intimate souvenirs of Hell.  I believe, to be sure, that any man who reaches Heaven will find that what he abandoned . . . has not been lost and that the kernel of what he was REALLY SEEKING even in his most depraved wishes will be there, beyond expectation, waiting for him . . . Earth, I think, will not be found by anyone to be in the end a very distinct place.  I think Earth if chosen, instead of Heaven, will turn out to have been, all along, only a region in Hell; and Earth, if put second to Heaven, to have been from the beginning a part of Heaven itself.”

C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce
