C. S. Lewis on Temptation

C. S. Lewis made these insightful observations about temptation: “No man knows how bad he is until he has tried very hard to be good. A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. That is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is…Christ, because He was the only Man who never yielded to temptation, is also the only Man who knows to the full what temptation means.”
