“I think every natural thing which is not in itself sinful can become the servant of the spiritual life, but none is automatically so.” (Volume 3, Page 731)
“The first essential point for a letter writer to master is that of making himself intelligable to his reader.” (Volume 1, Page 104)
“Before the service was over-one cd. wish these things came more seasonably-I was struck by an idea for a book wh. I think might be both useful and entertaining. It wd. be called As one Devil to Another and would consist of letters from an elderly retired devil to a young devil who has just started work on his first ‘patient’.310 The idea wd. be to give all the psychology of temptation from the other point of view. e.g. ‘About undermining his faith in prayer, I don’t think you need have any difficulty with his intellect, provided you never say the wrong thing at the wrong moment.” (Volume 2, Pages 426–427)
“It is Christ Himself, not the Bible, who is the true word of God. The Bible, read in the right spirit and with the guidance of good teachers will bring us to Him. When it becomes really necessary (i.e. for our spiritual life, not for controversy or curiosity) to know whether a particular passage is rightly translated or is Myth (but of course Myth specially chosen by God from among countless Myths to carry a spiritual truth) or history, we shall no doubt be guided to the right answer.” (Volume 3, Page 246)
“Devotion is best raised when we intend something else. At least that is my experience. Sit down to meditate devotionally on a single verse, and nothing happens. Hammer your way through a continued argument, just as you would in a profane writer, and the heart will sometimes sing unbidden.” (Volume 2, Page 136)
