The Devil's Book of Aphorisms: Part 1

Why, yes, My Dear, Vanity is the source of all Beauty
The safest road to Hell is the gradual one—the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.

All mortals tend to turn into the thing they are pretending to be.

— C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

From the archives...

Screwtape’s Hierarchy of Greeds:

Those who can, Create.

Those who cannot create, Execute.

Those who cannot execute, Finance.

Those who cannot finance, Do Deals.

Those who cannot do deals, Trade.

Those who cannot trade, Write about the rest.

Those who cannot write, Pay for all this activity.
