not less than everything

these are quotes i wrote down in my moleskin after reading 'A Severe Mercy' by Sheldon Vanauken.

'tormented thought & worn-out shoes/take all & dwell therein'

to be a christian: 'a condition of complete simplicity/costing not less than everything.'
-c.s. lewis

'thus, rather improbably, began what i must call, judging by all others i've known of, a rather remarkable love. its remarkableness lay, not in our falling quite desperately in love--many have experienced that glory--but in what we made of that love.'
-sheldon vanauken
