Here are my favorite quotes from the assorted C.S. Lewis books that are covered in the month of October in the book. There were quite a few of them that offered profound perspective when life is difficult. If you are going through a rough season of life right now I pray they may be of encouragement to you. Consider the following:
You can’t see anything properly while your eyes are blurred with tears.
God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pain: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.
Now God, who has made us, knows what we are and that our happiness lies in Him. Yet we will not seek it in Him as long as he leaves us any other resort where it can even plausibly be looked for. While what we call ‘our own life’ remains agreeable we will not surrender it to Him. What then can God do in our interests but make ‘our own life’ less agreeable to us, and take away the plausible source of false happiness?
