Quote from C. S. Lewis

“Do you thing I am trying to weave a spell?  Perhaps I am; but remember your fairy tales.  Spells are used for breaking enchantments as well as for inducing them.  And you and I have need of the strongest spell that can be found to wake us from the evil enchantment of worldliness which has been laid upon us for nearly a hundred years.”  (C. S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory)

  1. My favorite C.S. Lewis quote:

    “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.”
