“No justification of virtue will enable a man to be virtuous. Without the aid of trained emotions the intellect is powerless against the animal organism. I had sooner play cards against a man who was quite skeptical about ethics, but bred to believe that ‘a gentleman does not cheat’, than against an irreproachable moral philosopher who had been brought up among sharpers.”

C.S. Lewis

“We regard God as an airman regards his parachute; it's there for emergencies but he hopes he'll never have to use it.”

C.S. Lewis

“Who are you?' One who has waited long for you to speak.”

C.S. Lewis

“This act [creation], as it is for God, must always remain totally inconceivable to man. For we--even our poets and musicians and inventors--never, in the ultimate sense make. We only build. We always have materials to build from. All we can know about the act of creation must be derived from what we can gather about the relation of the creatures to their Creator”

C.S. Lewis

“Because, as we know, almost anything can be read into any book if you are determined enough. This will be especially impressed on anyone who has written fantastic fiction. He will find reviewers, both favourable and hostile, reading into his stories all manner of allegorical meanings which he never intended. (Some of the allegories thus imposed on my own books have been so ingenious and interesting that I often wish I had thought of them myself.)”

C.S. Lewis

“But that would be putting the clock back," gasped the Governor. "Have you no idea of progress, of development?" "I have seen them both in an egg," said Caspian. "We call it Going bad in Narnia.” 

C.S. Lewis

“Yes,” said the Lord Digory. “Its inside is bigger than its outside.”

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

“And the Prince stared at her like a man out of his wits.” 

C.S. Lewis

“The Christians are right: it is Pride which has been the chief cause of misery in every nation and every family since the world began.”

C.S. Lewis

“But very quickly they all became grave again: for, as you know, there is a kind of happiness and wonder that makes you serious. It is too good to waste on jokes.”

C.S. Lewis

“Oh, Adam’s sons, how cleverly you defend yourselves against all that might do you good!”

C.S. Lewis

“The proper good of a creature is to surrender itself to its Creator—to enact intellectually, volitionally, and emotionally, that relationship which is given in the mere fact of its being a creature. When it does so, it is good and happy.”

C.S. Lewis

“Do not be deceived, Wormwood. Our cause is never more in danger than when a human, no longer desiring, but still intending, to do our Enemy's will, looks round upon a universe from which every trace of Him seems to have vanished, and asks why he has been forsaken, and still obeys.”

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
