Everything Sad Will Come Untrue

“Is everything sad going to come untrue?”

—Sam Gamgee to Gandalf, The Lord of the Rings (chapter 4, Book Six)

“[Some mortals] say of some temporal suffering, “No future bliss can make up for it,” not knowing that Heaven, once attained, will work backwards and turn even that agony into a glory.”

—C. S. Lewis, The Great Divorce, chapter 9.

“He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!”

—Revelation 22:20
