C. S. Lewis Quotes and Quotations


Christianity, if false, is not important. If Christianity is true, however, it is of infinite importance. What it cannot be is moderately important.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because I see everything by it.
Not simply one of the virtues but the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means at the point of highest reality.
Unsatisfied desire is in itself more desirable than any other satisfaction.
The future is something which every one reaches at the rate of sixty miles an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.
- C. S. Lewis | The Future Quotes
The safest road to Hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.
A woman means by unselfishness chiefly taking trouble for others; a man means not giving trouble to others. Thus each sex regards the other as basically selfish.
- C. S. Lewis | Men and Women Quotes
Nothing which is at all times and in every way agreeable to us can have objective reality. It is of the very nature of the real that it should have sharp corners and rough edges, that it should be resistant, should be itself. Dream-furniture is the only kind on which you never stub your toes or bang your knee.
- C. S. Lewis | Reality Quotes
True friends ... face in the same direction, toward common projects, interests, goals.
- C. S. Lewis | Friendship Quotes
Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted, in spite of your changing moods.
- C. S. Lewis | Faith and Unity Quotes
We must lay before him what is in us, not what ought to be in us.
- C. S. Lewis | Prayer Quotes
Prayer in the sense of petition, asking for things, is a small part of it; confession and penitence are its threshold, adoration its sanctuary, the presence and vision and enjoyment of God its bread and wine.
- C. S. Lewis | Prayer Quotes
It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.
- C. S. Lewis | Prayer Quotes
In Gethsemane the holiest of all petitioners prayed three times that a certain cup might pass from Him. It did not. After that the idea that prayer is recommended to us as a sort of infallible gimmick may be dismissed.
- C. S. Lewis | Prayer Quotes
Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.
- C. S. Lewis | Mornings Quotes
The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.
- C. S. Lewis | The Future Quotes

- C. S. Lewis | Difficult Days Quotes
All that is not eternal is eternally out of date.
- C. S. Lewis | Change Quotes
Aim at heaven and you get earth thrown in; aim at earth and you get neither.
- C. S. Lewis | Goals Quotes
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
- C. S. Lewis | Courage Quotes
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."
- C. S. Lewis | Action Quotes
Do not waste time bothering whether you "love" your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love him. If you injure someone you dislike, you will find yourself disliking him more. If you do him a good turn, you will find yourself disliking him less.
- C. S. Lewis | Faith Quotes
The higher animals are in a sense drawn into Man when he loves them and makes them (as he does) much more nearly human than they would otherwise be.
- C. S. Lewis | Faith Quotes
Though our feelings come and go, God's love for us does not.
- C. S. Lewis | Faith Quotes
Do not waste time bothering whether you "love" your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love him.
