C.S. Lewis on Lilies and Wrinkles

30 October 1958
"I suppose living from day to day ('take no thought for the morrow') is precisely what we have to learn - though the Old Adam in me sometimes murmurs that if God wanted me to live like the lilies of the field, I wonder He didn't give me the same lack of nerves and imagination as they enjoy!  Or is that just the point, the precise purpose of this Divine paradox and audacity called Man - to do with a mind what other organisms do without it?

"As for wrinkles - pshaw! Why shouldn't we have wrinkles? Honorable insignia of long service in this warefare.  All well with us, in haste, with love.

Yours, Jack
C.S. Lewis
