Departures are all Alike

I shouldn’t be at all disturbed if it could be shown that a diabolical mysticism, or drugs, produced experiences indistinguishable (by introspection) from those of the great christian mystics. Departures are all alike, it is the landfall that crowns a voyage. The saint, by being a saint, proves that his mysticism led him aright; the fact that he has practiced mysticism could never prove his sanctity.

– CS Lewis, Letters to Malcolm
