Quotes from C.S. Lewis

"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You, too? Thought I was the only one."

"Everyone feels benevolent if nothing happens to be annoying him at the moment."

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

"To excuse what can really produce good excuses is not Christian charity; it is only fairness. To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you."

"A little lie is like a little pregnancy it doesn't take long before everyone knows."

"Anxiety is not only a pain which we must ask God to assuage but also a weakness we must ask Him to pardon; for He's told us to take no care for the morrow."

"The greatest thing is to be found at one's post as a child of God, living each day as though it were our last, but planning as though our world might last a hundred years."

""Now is our chance to choose the right side. God is holding back to give us that chance. It won't last forever. We must take it or leave it."

""'Don't you mind him,' said Puddleglum. 'There are no accidents. Our guide is Aslan.'"
--The Silver Chair

There were so many, it was hard to just choose a few. But I'll end with one of my dad's favorite quotes from The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe

""'Safe?' said Mr. Beaver...'Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. but he's good. He's the King, I tell you.'"

Thanks for sharing those C.S. Lewis quotes. I've always really liked that last one (the Mr. Beaver quote). I think that's the best line in the whole book (and there are a lot of good lines in that book). Have a great day.

I know, he has so many quotes. It was so hard to keep the amount I chose down. But I'm glad you liked them. And you are so right about that book, it does have a lot of good lines. :)
