QUOTATION: Time and Sin

We have a strange illusion that mere time cancels sin. I have heard others, and I have heard myself, recounting cruelties and falsehoods committed in boyhood as if they were no concern of the present speaker’s, and even with laughter. But mere time does nothing either to the fact of to the guilt of sin.

--C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
