C. S. Lewis Quote

We all want progress. But progress means getting nearer to the place where you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.


Book I, Ch. 5 (1952 edition) - Mere Christianity (1952)
