Quote reblogged from A well traveled woman with 1,759 notes

When a man is getting better he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him. When a man is getting worse he understands his own badness less and less. A moderately bad man knows he is not very good: a thoroughly bad man thinks he is all right. This is common sense, really. You understand sleep when you are awake, not while you are sleeping. You can see mistakes in arithmetic when your mind is working properly: while you are making them you cannot see them. You can understand the nature of drunkenness when you are sober, not when you are drunk. Good people know about both good and evil: bad people do not know about either.
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity  (via awelltraveledwoman)

At the core of all this progress lies our ability to learn.

Our biggest lesson has been about this balance between then and now, to keep the destination in mind but pay close attention to how we get there as well.
