C.S. Lewis – Favorite Quote from The Great Divorce


    ‘… it would be no use to come further even if it were possible. The sane would do no good if they made themselves mad to help madmen.’
    ‘But what of the poor Ghosts who never get [in]….’
    ‘Everyone who wishes it does. Never fear. There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, in the end, “Thy will be done.” All that are in Hell, choose it. Without that self-choice there could be no Hell. No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek find. To those who knock it is opened.’

George McDonald’s Spirit speaking to the narrator of the story.  From The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis.  The narrator was questioning if the good spirits in Heaven tried hard enough, to get those visiting spirits from Hell or Purgatory into Heaven.
