She wasn’t a person to whom things happen. She did all the happenings.
—Muriel Spark (via misswallflower)
There is always some peace in having submitted to the right. Don’t spoil it by worrying about the results, if you can help it. It is not your business to succeed (no one can be sure of that) but to do right: when you have done so, the rest lies with God—and Will!”
C.S. Lewis | letter to Arthur Greeves, December 29, 1935
