"Indeed the best thing about happiness itself is that it liberates you from thinking about happiness--as the greatest pleasure that money can give us is to make it unnecessary to think about money." C.S. Lewis
Lewis quotes "We were made not primarily that we may love God (though that we were made for that too) but that God may love us, that we may become objects in which the Divine love may rest 'well pleased.' To become an object God can love may require alteration. Some of our unhappy or painful experiences work to change us into beings God can love and find pleasure in." Lewis writes, "when we are such as He can love without impediment, we shall in fact be happy."
