Any Screwtape Letter that began with "My Very Dear Wormwood"
The first question read by seekers of enlightenment in the secret valleys near the hub are read when they look into the life of Wen the eternally surprised. The first question is always, “Why was he eternally surprised?”
...and they are told, “Wen considered the nature of time and understood that the universe is instant by instant, re-created anew. Therefore, he understood there is no past, only a memory of the past. Blink your eyes and the world you see next did not exist when you closed them. Therefore, he said, the only appropriate state of mind is surprise. The appropriate state of the heart is joy. The sky you see now, you have never seen before. The perfect moment is now. Be glad if it.”
The first words read by the young Lu-Tze when he sought perplexity in the dark teeming, rain-soaked city of Ankh-Morpork were “Rooms for rent, very reasonable,” and he was glad of it. (from Thief of Time by Terry Pratchett)
