"We learn that, on the one hand, we cannot trust ourselves even in our best moments, and, on the other hand, that we need not despair even in our worst, for our failures are forgiven." ~ C. S. Lewis
Found this through Sarah, down in the comments section of this post. You know, there was a while there when I got the silly notion that when you grow up, you've "arrived" and now are Competent and Know Stuff. Turns out, you still wander around figuring stuff out and going, "Heeey, I didn't know that..." This quote makes a lot more sense to me now than it would have even a few months--weeks!--ago. It's still a wonder to me, though, to understand it.
I hope he's right.
