C.S. Lewis | “if you read history, you will find that Christians who did most for the present world, were those who thought the most about the next. The apostles themselves who went about the conversion of the Roman empire … all left their own lives as their minds were preoccupied with the things of heaven. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they become ineffective in this one. Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you will get neither.”
