“The very condition of having Friends is that we should want something else besides Friends. Where the truthful answer to the question "Do you see the same truth?" would be "I see nothing and I don't care about the truth; I only want a Friend," no Friendship can arise - though Affection of course may. There would be nothing for the Friendship to be about; and Friendship must be about something, even if it were only an enthusiasm for dominoes or white mice. Those who have nothing can share nothing; those who are going nowhere can have no fellow-travellers.”

C.S. Lewis

“Every poet and musician and artist, but for Grace, is drawn away from the love of the thing he tells, to the love of the telling till, down in Deep Hell, they cannot be interested in God at all but only in what they say about Him”

C.S. Lewis

“Many things--such as loving, going to sleep, or behaving unaffectedly--are done worst when we try hardest to do them.”

C.S. Lewis

“What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth. They share it.”

C.S. Lewis

“Man approaches God most nearly when he is in one sense least like God. For what can be more unlike than fullness and need, sovereignty and humility, righteousness and penitence, limitless power and a cry for help?”

C.S. Lewis

“If you are worried about the people outside, the most unreasonable thing you can do is remain outside yourself. Christians are Christ's body...every addition to that body enables Him to do more. If you want to help those outside you must add your own little cell to the body of Christ who along can help them. Cutting off a man's fingers would be a odd way of getting him to do more work.”

C.S. Lewis

“Read and Re-Read--"Re-reading, we always find a new book.” 

C.S. Lewis

“Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of Godlight’ in the woods of our experience.”

C.S. Lewis

“Like a good chess player, Satan is always trying to maneuver you into a position where you can save your castle only by losing your bishop.”

C.S. Lewis

“[God] will not be used as a convenience. Men or nations who think they can revive the Faith in order to make a good society might just as well think they can use the stairs of heaven as a shortcut to the nearest chemist's shop.”

C.S. Lewis

“Will the others see you too?" asked Lucy. "Certainly not at first," said Aslan. "Later on, it depends." "But they won’t believe me!" said Lucy. "It doesn’t matter.”

C.S. Lewis

“If no set of moral ideas were truer or better than any other, there would be no sense in preferring civilised morality to savage morality.”

C.S. Lewis

“But he always licked to get visitors alone in the billiard room and tell them stories about a mysterious lady, a foreign royalty, with whom he had driven about London. 'A devilish temper she had,' he would say. 'But she was a dem fine woman, sir, a dem fine woman.”

C.S. Lewis

“I write for the unlearned about things in which I am unlearned myself.”

C.S. Lewis

“Peter, High King of Narnia," said Aslan. "Shut the Door.”
