Top 5 quotes from C.S. Lewis
"Reasoning is never, like poetry, judged from the outside at all."
"Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery's shadow or reflection: the fact that you don't merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief."
"Our passions are not too strong, they are too weak. We are far too easily pleased."
"God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world."
"Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even 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. To love is to be vulnerable."
Top 5 quotes from Education
"The small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify we give the name of knowledge."
"A man doesn't know what he knows until he knows what he doesn't know."
"Learning has been [a] great loser by being shut up in colleges and cells and secluded from the world and good company."
"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught."
"Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before. He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way."
