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 Christianity
"The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people."
"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."
"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."
"The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried."
"These are the days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed except his own."
