C. S. Lewis — There are no ordinary people…

There are no ordinary people.  You have never talked to a mere mortal.  Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations- these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat.  But it is immortals we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit- immortal horrors or everlasting splendors.
C. S. Lewis
