Matthew McManus That Hideous Strength

It must be remember that in Mark's mind hardly one rag of noble thought, either Christian or Pagan, had a secure lodging. His education had been neither scientific nor classical - merely "Modern." The severities both of abstraction and of high human tradition had passed him by: and he had neither peasant shrewdness nor aristocratic honour to help him. He was a man of straw, a glib examinee in subjects that require no exact knowledge.

“They would say, that you do not fail in obedience through lack of love, but have lost love because you never attempted obedience.”

Matthew McManus That Hideous Strength

"It is idle to point out to the perverted man the horror of his perversion: while the fierce fit is on, that horror is the very spice of his craving. It is ugliness itself that has become, in the end, the goal of his lechery; beauty has long since grown too weak a stimulant."
