Excerpt from C. S. Lewis’ “Weight of Glory”

‎”It may be possible
for each to think too much of his own
potential glory hereafter; it is hardly
possible for him to think too often or too
deeply about that of his neighbour. The

load, or weight, or burden of my
neighbour’s glory should be laid daily on
my back, a load so heavy that only
humility can carry it, and the backs of the
proud will be broken. (…) 
There are no ordinary people. You have
never talked to a mere mortal. (…)
And our charity must be a
real and costly love, with deep feeling for
the sins in spite of which we love the
sinner—no mere tolerance or indulgence
which parodies love as flippancy parodies
merriment.”
-The Weight of Glory; C.S. Lewis
 
And you, my dear friend, is one glorious immortal. 😉
