Faith and Teeth

If we wish to be rational, not now and then, but constantly, we must pray for the gift of Faith, for the power to go on believing, not in the teeth of reason but in the teeth of lust and terror and jealousy and boredom and indifference, that which reason, authority or experience, or all three, have once delivered to us for truth.

-C.S. Lewis from Christian Reflections, Religion, Reality or Substitute 1941, para 12, pg 43
