The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis

Screwtape is a senior devil advising his nephew Wormwood how better to seduce Christians. Screwtape says:

The simplest is to turn their gaze away from Him toward themselves.  Keep them watching their own minds and trying to produce feelings there by the action of their own wills
