The Gentle Imperative

“Can a mortal ask questions which God finds unanswerable? Quite easily, I should think. All nonsense questions are unanswerable. How many hours are there in a mile? Is yellow square or round? Probably half the questions we ask — half our great theological and metaphysical problems — are like that.”- C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

Myself included, this quote would have saved some of my buddies in college a great deal of heartache. We all could have used the gentle imperative, “Easy, Trigger!”
