For Meditation: "Inner health made audible"

“I had not noticed how the humblest, and at the same time most balanced and capacious, minds praised most, while the cranks, misfits and malcontents praised least  The good critics found something to praise in many imperfect works; the bade ones continually narrowed the list of books we were allowed to read.  The healthy and unaffected man, even if luxuriously brought up and widely experienced in good cookery, could praise a very modest meal; the dyspeptic and the snob found fault with all.  Except where intolerable circumstances interfere, praise almost always seems to be inner health made audible.”  C. S. Lewis, Reflections on the Psalms, 94.
