Praise Completes the Enjoyment - C.S.Lewis

"I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is the appointed consummation. It is not out of compliment that lovers keep on telling one another how beautiful they are; the delight is incomplete till it is expressed."

- C. S. Lewis, Reflections on the Psalms (San Diego, CA: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1958), 95. (emphysis is mine)
