"You Have Never Spoken to a Mere Mortal"

Justin Taylor recently posted a provocative quote from C.S. Lewis' The Weight of Glory:
It may be possible for each to think too much of his own potential glory hereafter; it is hardly possible for him to think too often or too deeply about that of his neighbor. The load, or weight, or burden of my neighbor's glory should be laid daily on my back, a load so heavy that only humility can carry it, and the backs of the proud will be broken.

There's much more rich truth in this brief Lewis passage--go read the rest.
