C.S. Lewis
“A perfect man would never act from a sense of duty; he’d always want the right thing more than the wrong one. Duty is only a substitute for love (of God and of other people) like a crutch which is a substitute for a leg. Most of us need the crutch at times; but of course it is idiotic to use the crutch when our own legs (our own loves, tastes, habits etc.) can do the journey on their own.”
C. S. Lewis, Letters of C. S. Lewis

Mary E. DeMuth
“The Gospel isn’t a life management program. It shouldn’t merely be the crutch we fall on when life gets ugly. It should be the legs we walk on, the air we breathe.”
Mary E. DeMuth, Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus

“Regrets never sit well, with those that never forget.”

“The truth may roar, but it's roaring does not terrify the blameless. Guilty conscience needs neither a critic nor an accuser. Remember, the truth has no aiding crutches; once it is limping, its name is "a lie'.”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Brooke McAlary
“Technology has become a crutch I'm using to get through an uncomfortable experience. Its a way of putting off the work but still convincing myself I'm doing something worthwhile. Aside from talking to my family, none of it has been worthwhile. In this instance technology is a distraction that is keeping me from feeling uncomfortable, from thinking too deeply, from doing too much. The biggest culprits behind the endless scrolling:
- Boredom
- procrastination
- emotional discomfort
- self sabotage
- self loathing or dissatisfaction
- habit
- looking for someone or something to inspire us.

Always pay attention to what we're doing and why we're doing it. Use it as a tool, not as a crutch.”
Brooke McAlary, Slow: Simple Living for a Frantic World

Peter   Atkins
“[Religious belief is] outmoded and ridiculous. [Belief in gods was a] worn out but once useful crutch in mankind's journey towards truth. We consider the time has come for that crutch to be abandoned.”
P.W. Atkins

“Plain speaking is necessary in any discussion of religion, for if the freethinker attacks the religious dogmas with hesitation, the orthodox believer assumes that it is with regret that the freethinker would remove the crutch that supports the orthodox. And all religious beliefs are 'crutches' hindering the free locomotive efforts of an advancing humanity. There are no problems related to human progress and happiness in this age which any theology can solve, and which the teachings of freethought cannot do better and without the aid of encumbrances.”
David Marshall Brooks, The Necessity of Atheism

Thomm Quackenbush
“Magick need not be a crutch, but it is hard to argue that anything you lean on in lieu of building your own strength weakens resolve.”
Thomm Quackenbush, Pagan Standard Times: Essays on the Craft
