Insofar as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God, I shall be moving towards the state in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all.
When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but increased. ~ C. S. Lewis, Letters of C.S. Lewis (8 November, 1952)
