Truth and Comfort
"If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end: if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth—only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin with and, in the end, despair."--C.S. Lewis
Truth is not comfortable at times; in fact it can make us downright uncomfortable. But in the end, it is the only thing on which to base a life.
