Some Lewis for the day

One never can see, or not till long afterwards, why any one was selected for any job. And when one does, it is usually some reason that leaves no room for vanity. Certainly, it is never for what the man himself would have regarded as his cheif qualifications.

- C.S. Lewis Perelandra

That is an awesome quote. C.S. Lewis is one of my favorite writers because he always has something to say. :-)
