I may have quoted this line in a previous post on this blog, but I can't quite recall. Anyway, I was reading a bit of Lewis' The Great Divorce, and I had to smile when I read the following line from the character George MacDonald:
There are two types of people in the world. Those who say to God, "Thy will be done," and those to whom God says, in the end, "Thy will be done."
That's a bit of a paraphrase, but I think the quote is pretty close. I don't have the book right in front of me. For those who may not know, MacDonald was Lewis' primary inspiration and, I believe, his most beloved author. Lewis was a MacDonald fanboy. I still intend to read MacDonald one of these days.
