“Better to be miserable with her than happy without her. Let our hearts break provided they break together. If the voice within us does not say this it is not the voice of Eros.”

C.S. Lewis

“The perfect church service would be one we were almost unaware of. Our attention would have been on God.”

C.S. Lewis

“But the greatest cause of verbicide is the fact that most people are obviously far more anxious to express their approval and disapproval of things than to describe them. Hence the tendency of words to become less descriptive and more evaluative; then become evaluative, while still retaining some hint of the sort of goodness or badness implied; and to end up by being purely evaluative -- useless synonyms for good or for bad.”

C.S. Lewis

“The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is to express the same delight in God which made David dance.”

C.S. Lewis

“Life isn't all fricasseed frogs and eel pie.”

C.S. Lewis

“For most of us the prayer in Gethsemane is the only model. Removing mountains can wait.”

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

“but who can feel ugly, when their heart feels joy”

C.S. Lewis

“Nothing you have not given away will ever really be yours.”

C.S. Lewis

“He's wild, you know. Not like a tame lion.”

C.S. Lewis

“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, "Courage, dear heart," and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan's, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.”

C.S. Lewis

“Human beings, all over the earth, have this curious idea that they ought to believe in a certain way, and can't really get rid of it.”

C.S. Lewis

“A great deal of democratic enthusiasm descends from the ideas of people like Rousseau, who believed in democracy because they thought mankind so wise and good that everyone deserved a share in the government. The danger of defending democracy on those grounds is that they’re not true. . . I find that they’re not true without looking further than myself. I don’t deserve a share in governing a hen-roost, much less a nation. The real reason for democracy is: Mankind is so fallen that no man can be trusted with unchecked power over his fellows. Aristotle said that some people were only fit to be slaves. I do not contradict him. But I reject slavery because I see no men fit to be masters.”

C.S. Lewis

“Life is too deep for words, so don't try to describe it, just live it. Actually this quote doesn't sound like C.S. Lewis at all. Can anyone provide a source?”

C.S. Lewis

“When we lose one blessing, another is often most unexpectedly given in its place.”

C.S. Lewis
