C.S. Lewis
C.S. Lewis
Clive Staples Lewis, known as Jack to his friends, was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day.
His major contributions in literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. Lewis and his good friend J. R. R. Tolkien, the author of the The Lord of the Rings.
Lewis's fascination with fairy tales, myths, and ancient legends, coupled with inspiration drawn from his childhood, led him to write The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, one of the best-loved books of all time. (1898-1963)

You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well.
~ C.S. Lewis
Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.
~ C.S. Lewis
To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.
~ C.S. Lewis
God, who foresaw your tribulation, has specially armed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain.
~ C.S. Lewis
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
~ C.S. Lewis
You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.
~ C.S. Lewis
God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.
~ C.S. Lewis
There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, "Thy will be done," and those to whom God says, "All right, then, have it your way.
~ C.S. Lewis
The pain I feel now is the happiness I had before. That's the deal.
~ C.S. Lewis
Every one says forgiveness is a lovely idea, until they have something to forgive.
~ C.S. Lewis
Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.
~ C.S. Lewis
Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted in spite of your changing moods.
~ C.S. Lewis
We're not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.
~ C.S. Lewis
If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.
~ C.S. Lewis
Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.
~ C.S. Lewis
Though our feelings come and go, Godís love for us does not.
~ C.S. Lewis
A man who is eating or lying with his wife or preparing to go to sleep in humility, thankfulness and temperance, is, by Christian standards, in an infinitely higher state than one who is listening to Bach or reading Plato in a state of pride.
~ C.S. Lewis
If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be without meaning.
~ C.S. Lewis
