C.S. Lewis has always been one of my favorite authors. I have read his books for years and they have continually inspired me. From his space aged fiction to his journeys into emotion, inspiration comes with every flip of the page.
Let me share with you a few of my favorites:
“Joy is the serious business of heaven.” From Letters to Malcolm
“We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.” From The Abolition of Man
“There is but one good; that is God. Everything else is good when it looks to Him and bad when it turns from Him.” From The Great Divorce
“No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.” From A Grief Observed
“Each day we are becoming a creature of splendid glory or one of unthinkable horror.” From Mere Christianity
“The truth is, of course, that what one regards as interruptions are precisely one’s life.” From Collected Works of CS Lewis
“The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.” From The Screwtape Letters
“To love at all is to be vulnerable.” From The Four Loves
“A pleasure is not full grown until it is remembered.” From Out of the Silent Planet
“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different…” From Prince Caspian
These are just a few of my favorites. How about you? What is your favorite Lewis quote?
