Quotes By C.S. Lewis
A four year old boy one day went up to his parents and protested about the name he had been given at birth. He didn't like it and he desperately wanted a new nomenclature. The child had already decided that he desired to be known as 'Jacksie', after his dog that had died in a car accident. But that's not it. What should actually come as a surprise is the fact that his parents had no objection to such a request. So from then on a boy called Clive Staples Lewis came to be known as Jacksie, aka Jack. The same toddler grew up to become one of the most loved authors of all time. This brilliant novelist is so highly acclaimed even today that he is the one who is most regularly quoted authors by the Twitterattis. The question of course arises as to why this man has always been in vogue. It isn’t just because he's penned the 'The Chronicles of Narnia', which describes a place where it is “always winter, but never Christmas.” True, children are drawn to such a magical universe, but this matchless writer is equally sought after by adults. Then is it his ecclesiastical masterpiece, ‘Mere Christianity’ that demands a fair share of his fame? Lewis, who was also a theologian and philosopher, inspired the religious beliefs of millions across the globe. What made him so well-accepted was the fact that he didn’t blindly believe in Jesus. In fact he weighed all possibilities of the loved messiah being unreal or insane till he could no longer find a reason for cynicism. That is when he became resolved in his faith of Christianity. But, what’s even more astounding than his skepticism-turned-conviction, is the vast spectrum of genres he used for conveying his messages—mythology, fairy tales and poetry—thus impelling the child as and the adult alike. These quotes by C.S. Lewis prove exactly how newfangled his ideas were at a time when no one dared to think out of the box.
