Dear Heart has claimed more than once that he is "not a deep thinker."
I disagree. One of his favorite sayings is "Be Happy"
The Apostle Paul said it like this.
C. S. Lewis said it this way:
"My own idea, for what it is worth, is that all sadness
which is not either arising
from the repentance of a concrete sin
and hastening towards concrete amendment or restitution,
or else arising from pity and hastening to active assistance, is simply bad;
and I think we all sin
by needlessly disobeying the apostolic injunction to
'rejoice' as much as by anything else."
