“Not a moment too soon” by C.S. Lewis

“We see unmistakable the sort of universe in which we have all along been living, and must come to terms with it. If we had foolish un-Christian hopes about human culture, they are now shattered. If we thought we were building up a heaven on earth, if we looked for something that would turn the present world from a place of pilgrimage into a permanent city satisfying the soul of man, we are disillusioned, and not a moment too soon.”

–C. S. Lewis, “Learning in Wartime,” in The Weight of Glory: And Other Addresses (New York: HarperCollins, 1949/2001), 62-3.
