„Probably half the questions we ask — half our great theological and metaphysical problems — are like that.“

—  Clive Staples Lewis, kniha A Grief Observed

Probably half the questions we ask — half our great theological and metaphysical problems — are like that.

O'er his Italian love's last sleep.
Oh, tears are a most worthless token,
When hearts they would have soothed are broken.“
