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 Art, Writing
"Four hostile newspapers are more to be feared than a thousand bayonets."
"Advice to young writers who want to get ahead without annoying delays: donít write about Man, write about 'a' man."
"No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader."
"Special-interest publications should realize that if they are attracting enough advertising and readers to make a profit, the interest is not so special."
"Fiction is the truth inside the lie."
