Clive Lewis

He is well known for his fictional work, especially The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia and The Space Trilogy.
That thing is Freedom: the gift whereby ye most resemble your Maker and are yourselves part of eternal reality.More Clive Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[Milton's] argument is (a) St. Augustine was wrong in thinking God's only purpose in giving Adam a female, instead of a male, companion, was copulation. For (b) there is a "peculiar comfort" in the society of man and woman "beside, (i.e. in addition to, apart from) the genial bed"; and (c) we know from Scripture that something analogous to "play" or "slackening the cords" occurs even in God. That is why the Song of Songs describes a thousand raptures...far on the hither side of carnal enjoyment.More Clive Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is hard to have patience with people who say, �There is no death’ or �Death doesn’t matter.’ There is death. And whatever is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as wel say that birth doesn’t matter.More Clive Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
He that but looketh on a plate of ham and eggs to lust after it hath already committed breakfast with it in his heartMore Clive Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We do not enjoy a story fully at the first reading. Not till the curiosity, the sheer narrative lust, has been given its sop and laid asleep, are we at leisure to savour the real beauties.More Clive Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
