Random quote of the day:

“Humans are amphibians—half spirit and half animal. As spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time. This means that while their spirits can be directed to an eternal object, their bodies, passions, and imaginations are in continual change, for to be in time, means to change.”

—C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters
