"THE point is not that if we go on as we are we shall collide with some frightful fate. The point is rather that unless we make a magnificent effort, our frightful fate will be- to go on as we are." ~G.K. Chesterton: "Daily News", Feb. 24, 1906
... "If you don't read good books you will read bad ones. If you don't go on thinking rationally, you will think irrationally. If you reject aesthetic satisfactions you will fall into sensual satisfactions." - C.S. Lewis, from The Weight of Glory, and Learning in War-Time.
