Quotes by C.S. Lewis

Some of my favorite quotes by C.S. Lewis.

"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." ~C. S. Lewis

"But feeling a desire to help is quite different from feeling you ought to help whether you want to or not." ~C.S. Lewis

"The moral law tells us the tune we have to play: our instincts are merely the keys." ~C.S. Lewis

"Progress means not just changing, but changing for the better." ~C.S. Lewis


"The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us; just as the roof of a sunhouse does not attract the sun because it is bright, but becomes bright because the Son shines on it." ~ C.S. Lewis


"He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on, there is no other." ~ C.S. Lewis


"When you are arguing against Him, you are arguing against the very power that makes you able to argue at all." ~ C.S. Lewis


"To walk out of God's will is to step into nowhere." ~ C.S. Lewis


 "To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the excusable in you."
~ 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


"God knows our situation, He will not judge us as if we had no difficulties to overcome. What matters is the sincerity and perseverance of our will to overcome them." ~ C.S. Lewis


"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him, than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling 'darkness' on the wall of his cell." ~ C.S. Lewis


"Faith is the art of holding things your reason has once accepted in spite of your changing moods."
~ C.S. Lewis


"The only things we can keep are the things we freely give to God. What we try to keep for ourselves is just what we are sure to lose." ~ C.S. Lewis

"Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in, Aim at earth and you will get neither." ~ C.S. Lewis

  1. Love C.S Lewis! :-)

    And one of my favorite quotes by C.S. Lewis (which, quite apart from the mention of my favorite author, I like the quote in itself.):

    "...In reading Chesterton, as in reading MacDonald, I did not know what I was letting myself in for. A young man who wishes to remain a sound Atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere- 'Bibles laid open, millions of surprises,' as Herbert says, 'fine nets and stratagems.' God is, if I may say it, very unscrupulous."

    ("Surprised by Joy")
