Happy?

I recently saw a quote by C.S. Lewis on social media. It was taken from his book Mere Christianity, and he made this observation:

And out of that hopeless attempt has come nearly all that we call human history—money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery—the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.

Weirdo Things I Do

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass are, above all, concerned with the problem of meaning. A seven year old girl tumbles underground through a rabbit hole where she meets querulous creatures who deploy nit-picking logic and idle philosophical banter; she runs a race, fails to drink tea, is danced in a qaudrille, plays croquet, gives evidence in court and negotiates a fiendish chess game (where the living pieces are ignorant of the game’s plan). 844 more words

The prelude of the one act play opens at a fairground ride in Shrewsbury: the Ferris Wheel. A solo clarinet is heard sotto voce as local boy Carl Oriswell sits in his pod eating mixed-green salad with gnocchi and a wild mushroom salsa. 824 more words
