Quotes by C. S. Lewis

Here are some brilliant quotes by C. S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia. Of course, just because I agree with them doesn't make them true, but I believe them.
  • We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
  • You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.
  • There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, "Thy will be done," and those to whom God says, "All right, then, have it your way."
  • Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.
  • Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.
And I saved the best for last:
  • Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
