Generosity in quotes: C. S. Lewis

“Prosperity knits a man to the World. He feels that is ‘finding his place in it,’ while really it is finding its place in him. His increasing reputation, his widening circle of acquaintances, his sense of importance, the growing pressure of absorbing and agreeable work, build up in him a sense of really being at home on Earth, which is just what we want. You will notice that the young are generally less unwilling to die than the middle-aged and the old.”

 197C. S. Lewis, novelist, poet, academic, medievalist, literary critic, essayist, lay theologian, and Christian apologist, from Screwtape Letters
