By the way, don’t “weep inwardly” and get a sore throat. If you must weep, weep: a good honest howl! I suspect we—and especially, my sex—don’t cry enough now-a-days. Aeneas and Hector and Beowulf, Roland and Lancelot blubbered like schoolgirls, so why shouldn’t we?
~C.S. Lewis, in a letter to Mary Willis Shelburne, February 22, 1954
For reflection on 2 Samuel 18:33
